God-Shaped Heart

Jesus, You know I delight in You.
You know I believe your Word is true.
Lord, let Your Word shape my heart like You.
Yes, only a God-shaped heart will do.

Your Word is a lamp unto my feet,
I'll walk as You shine Your light to see.
Teach me to walk in the light of truth,
Holy Spirit, come walk close to me.

I will walk in the light of Your Word,
With open eyes and illumined heart.
Lord, shape me now, to be more like You,
And mold me to have that God-shaped heart.
