My Delight

I have counted the cost
What the world has to offer
I consider it loss
Compared to the riches of knowing my Lord
I have lost what was precious
To gain what is pure
My delight is to know You Lord
What greater joy could there be in this world
Though You may be hidden yet one day I’ll see
The One who delights in me

Though I’ve not yet attained it
I press on to the goal
To lay hold of that
For which He grasped my soul
Forgetting my failures
And all I have done
I will strain for the finish
Till my race has been run
