My heart delights that Christ my Lord
would leave his heavenly throne
And come to earth, our God a man
to claim us for his own.
The king of all took off his crown
He took on human form
He clothed himself in humble flesh
And as a child was born.
My heart delights and wonders at
this love that gives himself
He sought no honour, no acclaim
no riches and no wealth.
His only thought was to obey
the path set out for him
To walk the road to Calvary
and take away our sin.
My heart delights that Christ would seek
a sinful soul as mine
My heart was all unrighteousness
But his was love divine!
Oh spirit move and change me so
that I should be like Christ
Oh make his will all I desire
And him my heart's delight.
I've changed a bit at the end of V3. Took out the heart beating line. Was it too sentimental? Also would the last line be better if it said 'he' instead of 'him'? 'Him' is more correct, but yuckier I think.
