My heart is fixed, eternal God

1
My heart is fixed, eternal God,
  Fixed on Thee, fixed on Thee;
And my immortal choice is made,
  Christ for me, Christ for me;
He is my prophet, priest, and king,
Who did for me salvation bring,
And while I’ve breath I mean to sing,
  Christ for me, Christ for me.
2
In Him I see the Godhead shine,
  Christ for me, Christ for me;
He is the majesty divine,
  Christ for me, Christ for me;
The Father’s well-beloved Son,
Co-partner of His royal throne,
Who bore the guilt of man alone,
  Christ for me, Christ for me.
3
Let others boast of heaps of gold,
  Christ for me, Christ for me;
His riches never can be told,
  Christ for me, Christ for me;
Your gold will waste and wear away,
Your honors perish in a day;
My portion never can decay,
  Christ for me, Christ for me.
4
In pining sickness, or in health,
  Christ for me, Christ for me;
In deepest poverty or wealth,
  Christ for me, Christ for me;
And in that all-important day,
When I the summons must obey,
And pass from this dark world away,
  Christ for me, Christ for me.

Lorb my heart is fixed. My immortal choice is made Christ for me! Lord be my one choice forever. Amen!

On the night my granddad was saved, at a tent meeting, this hymn was sung and his family recalled how he sang this hymn most of the night, afterwards! His was a true conversion and following on from that he lead the rest of his family to the Lord. I owe a lot to him.

I always enjoy singing this hymn simply because it brings me back to the realization that Christ is the only important thing in the universe. Everything else, be it money, education, people, the future, whatever - "it will waste and wear away."

I pray that the Lord would allow this to be my constant experience: "My heart is fixed, eternal God, fixed on Thee, fixed on Thee; And my immortal choice is made - Christ for me! Christ for me! He is my Prophet, Priest, and King, who did for me salvation bring; And while I've breath I mean to sing - Christ for me! Christ for me!"
