About this tab version
The other versions did on Ultimate Guitar do not have the correct lyrics or chords. With regards to lyrics, there is a "that" before Thou in the second line of verse 1 and an "and" before the Thou in the second line of verse 2. With regards to chords, the third line in the verses was wrong. The chord rotation is 6-1-6-4, not 6-4-1-4. In the last line of every verse, the other version included a 5 chord before resolving to a 1, however that cannot be heard in the recording by guitar or even the bass. It works, but is not from the original. Lastly, the second half of the chorus was mapped incorrectly. It is not the same chord rotation as the rest of the chorus. It is very clearly walking up from a 2 to the 5 chord (2-1/3-4-5) in the recording, as the bass, guitar, and synth all clearly do. A comment on the popular versions points out these errors. I am performing this song with my church band and decided to fix this chart for those reasons. Was this info helpful? Yes No

Note:
F# is the original key, although it is an awkward one to play on guitar.
I would recommend playing it in E with a capo on the 2nd fret.
Capo 4 in D or Capo 6 in C would work, too.


[Verse 1]

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


[Verse 2]

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


[Verse 3]

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


[Chorus]

  C#        D#m         B       C#
O God be my everything, be my delight
   C#       D#m       B         C#
Be Jesus my glory, my soul satisfied (2x)

   G#m F#/A#   B    C#
My Je-sus, You satisfy (4x)


[Verse 4]

F#           D#m        B       F#       
High King of heaven, my vict’ry won,
C#          D#m            B               C#
May I reach heaven's joys, bright heaven's Sun!
D#m         F#             D#m    B
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
F#          D#m       B        F#
Still be my vision, O Ruler of all. (this line 2x)


[Chorus]

  C#        D#m         B       C#
O God be my everything, be my delight
   C#       D#m       B         C#
Be Jesus my glory, my soul satisfied (2x)
