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.
