HT to Stephen Starke for this one...

My Heart Would Ever Wander


(Mitt Hjerte Alltid Vanker)


1. My heart would ever wander

To where my Lord was born,

My thoughts return to ponder

That humble stall forlorn:

My faith there finds its treasure,

Its home of pure delight,

Its peace beyond all measure

This blessèd Christmas night.


2. Palm branches I would scatter

Around the place You lie.

For You alone, Lord, matter;

For You, I live and die.

Come, let my soul be finding

The joy that makes me whole:

Yourself to me, Lord, binding

Here, deep within my soul.


3. Lord, come, each bolt removing;

Unlock my heart and mind.

My longing sighs are proving

The welcome You will find.

Your love my heart obtaining:

You purchased it from sin,

Thus evermore remaining--

Your love, wrapped here within!
