My Hero

 


by Delia

They asked me why,

What makes You, my Hero?

It is Your compassion,

the gentleness of Your heart. 

It is the softness of Your Spirit

and that humbleness

which I desire. 

Christ be formed in me.

It is You I have chosen

and like You I long to be.

It is the passion You showed

in all You did,

It is Your faithfulness and

dependancy on Your Father.

It is Your servant heart,

serving in all You do,

It is Your gentleness and

tenderness and the caring

love You have for me. 

Christ be formed in me.

It is You I have chosen

and like You I long to be. 

It is Your boldness,

yet stability,

making You stand up

a leader strong.

yes, Christ be formed in me. 

This is why,

this is what,

makes You my Hero

and like You I long to be.
 

But alone I can't

Alone I'll fall,

Holy Spirit this is my prayer -

Take me by the hand 

and lead me to be,

more and more like Thee.
