If you were to look, you'll find this in any christian hymn book, but I have always thought of it a a paean (sp. ?) of praise to the All Father. There ain't a single reference to jesus, god, or any other bugger. I intend to have this sung,

once I have croaked, at the cremmy :

Be thou my vision, thou, lord of my heart :
Let nowt be all else to me, save that thou art.
Thou, my best thought in the day or the night -
In waking or sleeping, my treasure thou art.

The "middle verses" you can keep for me :

High King of Heaven, with victory won -
Let me reach heaven's gate, heaven's bright sun.
Heart of my own heart whatever befall -
Still be thou my vision, thou, ruler of all.

So mote it be.
