Fill all my vision, Savior, I pray

Fill all my vision, Savior, I pray,
Let me see only Jesus today;
Though through the valley Thou leadest me,
Thy fadeless glory encompasseth me.
  Fill all my vision, Savior divine,
Till with Thy glory my spirit shall shine.
Fill all my vision, that all may see
  Thy Holy Image reflected in me.
Fill all my vision, every desire
Keep for Thy glory; my soul inspire
With Thy perfection, Thy holy love,
Flooding my pathway with light from above.
Fill all my vision, let naught of sin
Shadow the brightness shining within.
Let me see only Thy blessed face,
Feasting my soul on Thy infinite grace.

Came across this hymn whilst searching the internet for hymns on the theme of "vision" - I had never come across it before. Two thoughts: (i) it could do with a tune that plumbs the heights and depths of emotions a bit more; and (ii) compared to the other two verses, line 3 of verse 1 is a bit of a dampener - I think an honest acknowledgement that we all go through dark times is good in a hymn, but somehow this mood interrupts the rise of verse 1, and I would have preferred it to come somewhere else in the hymn.

I love this song. If we all prayed this prayer through until it was fulfilled in our lives, what a wonderful world this would be. Lord fulfill Your Word in us! In Jesus Name I pray!
