God Be in My Heart
Text by Anonymous 16th Century

God be in my heart
And in my understanding;
God be in my eyes
And in my looking;

God be in my lips
And in my speaking;
God be in my heart,
God be in my heart

And in my thinking;
God be with me at the end
And at my departing.
Oh, oh, God be in my heart.
