My Heart Delights

1. My heart delights that God would leave his throne,
And come to earth to claim us as his own.
O love divine, clothed in this flesh of mine!
God in our form a child was born.

Chorus: Jesus, Lord through all the ages
God from God and light from light
Came from heaven, brought salvation
Be alone our heart’s delight.

2. My heart delights that God would give himself
He sought no power, no honour and no wealth
What love, what grace! To suffer in my place.
Upon the tree of Calvary.

3. My heart delights that I can live for him
And serve the one who freed me from my sin.
Lord light your fire! Become my one desire!
My hope, my might, my heart’s delight.
