Be Thou

I was listening to music this morning
and "Be Thou My Vision" came on.
That song gets me every time.
It is a declaration of faith in just about every area.

Be thou my vision, O Lord of my heart,
not be all else to me, save that Thou art;
Thou my best thought in the day or the night,
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.
Jesus, You have to be my vision, my heart's one desire.
May everything else fade in comparison to You.
You are the best thought I could have all day.
Your presence is my light.

Be thou my breastplate, my sword for the fight;
Be thou my armor, and be thou my might;
Thou my soul's shelter, and Thou my high tower:
Raise Thou me heavenward, O Power of my power.
Jesus, You are my battle shield.
You have all the strength I need to win every battle.
Your love is my strong tower, Your grace is my refuge.
I sit up with You and rule with Your power.
Psalm 91 echoes this same truth:
This I declare about the LORD:
He alone is my refuge, my place of safety;
He is my God, and I trust him.
The LORD says, “I will rescue those who love me.
I will protect those who trust in my name.
When they call on me, I will answer;
I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honor them.
I will reward them with a long life and give them my salvation.”
Oh, I am so thankful for this great love.
