My Delight

There was a christening during church yesterday and our choir director, Andy, sang this sweet song to the baby, which is almost like a lullaby*. As I was sitting there listening, the lyrics made me think of our daughter - especially the third verse. I often get choked up at baptisms (and weddings), but yesterday I was a little overcome with emotion.

This wait is hard, I won’t pretend that it isn’t, and when the feelings hit, I try to just go with them.

My Delight
When I learn to listen
Follow where You lead
You will keep me satisfied
Give me what I need

My Delight
You are my delight
I think about you day and night
You are my delight

When I learn to love you
Keep my heart on fire
You will be my everything
All that I desire

My Delight
You are my delight
I think about you day and night
You are my delight

I will wait to hear your voice
I will look into your eyes
I could search around the world
And never find a greater prize

My Delight
You are my delight
I think about you day and night
You are my delight

*Update: This actually is a lullaby! It is included on a cd of lullabies and prayers for babies - click here for more info. It sounds very sweet :)
