D          Bm       D          F#m
Be Thou my vision O lord of my heart
Em            A          Bm              A
Nought be all else to me, save that Thou art
Bm           D           Bm        A
Thou my best thought, by day or by night
D         Bm            Em          D
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.

D          Bm      D            F#m
Be Thou my wisdom, Thou my true word
Em     A          Bm            A
I ever with Thee, Thou with me, Lord
Bm            D          Bm         A
Thou my great Father and I Thy true son;
D          Bm            Em          D
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.

D          Bm             D             F#m
Be Thou my battle-shield, sword for the fight,
Em         A        Bm        A
be Thou my dignity, Thou my delight.
Bm             D        Bm           A
Thou my soul's shelter, Thou my high tower:
D             Bm            Em          D
raise Thou me heavenward, O Power of my power.

D        Bm            D           F#m
Riches I heed not, nor man's empty praise
Em          A         Bm      A
Thou mine inheritance now and always
Bm            D     Bm          A
Thou and Thou only, first in my heart
D            Bm         Em            D
High King of heaven, my treasure Thou art.

D            Bm            D       F#m
High King of heaven, after victory won,
Em          A              Bm                A
May I reach heaven's joys, O bright heaven's Sun!
Bm          D             Bm      A
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
D           Bm        Em       D
Still be my vision, O Ruler of all.

Line 2 in the 1st verse should end, "save that Thou art."

I believe that the 3rd line needs to end on a minor. in this case Em.
