Today I discovered that Leah (pictured) had made another visit. Sitemeter led me to her blog and I enjoyed what she had posted. It's rare these days to find a young woman who loves old hymns.
Leah posted the lyrics to the great, old hymn Be Thou My Vision. I've included those lyrics here.
Be Thou my vision, O Lord of my heart;
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art.
Thou my best thought, by day or by night,
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.
Be Thou my Wisdom, Thou my true Word;
I ever with Thee, Thou with me, Lord;
Thou my great Father, I thy true son;
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.
Riches I heed not, nor man's empty praise,
Thou mine inheritance, now and always:
Thou and Thou only, first in my heart,
High King of heaven, my Treasure Thou art.
High King of heaven, my victory won,
May I reach heaven's joys, O bright heav'ns Son!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be my vision, O ruler of all.
Leah, if you read this post, e-mail me so I can write back. Have a great day and may the Lord enrich your life as you trust Him daily.

I LOVE that hymn, too. I like it so much that I programmed my computer to play it when it opens instead of the default Windows opening music!
Love and Prayers,
Wow, thanks for post!
It’s so great to hear that someone has read and enjoyed my blog!
I love checking in on Pilgrim Scribblings.
It’s been especially great since I’ve been overseas and away from my spiritual family to have somewhere where I can go and get regular encouragement.
Your reflections, stories and thoughts are so very much appreciated!
And it’s great to be in touch with you now too.
Thanks again and God bless,
(Leah is actually my middle name=)
