    Default Amazing - A Work in Progress

    Working on a new song and I think I have the lyrics down mostly. Here's what I've got so far...

    ~~~~~~~~~~~

    Chorus
    Jesus, my heart delights in you!
    Faithful and ever true!
    Amazing!
    Amazing!
    Wider than any mountain view,
    Vast like the ocean blue!
    Amazing!
    Amazing!

    Verse 1
    In the Light I wake.
    In the Light I go forth.
    You define my pathway.
    You mark my course.
    I listen for your Voice;
    To your Spirit for guidance;
    Following
    Your Perfect Compass.
    Graciously You call
    When I've gone the wrong way,
    And you lift me up when I'm
    Losing strength.
    You lead my feeble steps
    Up the highest of mountains,
    Quench me by
    Your Living Fountain.

    Chorus
    Jesus, my heart delights in you!
    Faithful and ever true!
    Amazing!
    Amazing!
    Mercy I'll never understand
    Making me whole again.
    Amazing!
    Amazing!

    Verse 2
    Lord, I must confess
    That I often forget
    Of Your priceless payment
    For my transgressions.
    Truly I am Yours
    And Your Spirit lives in me.
    Fill my heart with real contrition.
    Someday I will see
    With my very own eyes
    You, who stayed by me
    In the darkest times,
    Orchestrating songs
    In a heart that was dying.
    Now from Zion
    Joyful cries ring:

    Chorus
    Jesus, my heart delights in you!
    Faithful and ever true!
    Amazing!
    Amazing!
    Holding the hands that pierced your own,
    Guiding me to your throne.
    Amazing!
    Amazing!

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Here are two verses I've written out, but I'm not sure will make it into the final cut of the song...
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    By the blood of Christ,
    By the blood of the Lamb,
    Jesus gave himself
    For a wayward land.
    Perfect blood sprinkled
    On God's mercy seat.
    Breaking logic
    To restore me.

    Even though I walk
    Through the Valley of Death,
    I will fear no evil
    For you are with me;
    Relishing your gifts
    Before enemies,
    Dwelling in your
    Love and Mercy.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    What do you think? Suggestions for improvements to some of the lines or verses?

    Wow... I misread your post at first and thought you were saying that you heard a Gospel song at 530 this morning (like on the radio or something) and that the parts you highlighted in mine were the only parts that were different from the one you heard! You really scared me for a moment! I was thinking: "What are the odds that I would write a song so close to one already published? How frustrating is that?!"

    Thanks a lot for your edits! It does give me some ideas to think about. I do have a tune already, so I would have to work it to fit the tune, meaning removing or adding syllables or changing the syncopation would cause it to not fit the tune I have anymore.
