1 THOU didst leave Thy throne,

And Thy kingly crown

When Thou camest to earth for me,
But in Bethlehem's home
Was there found no room
For Thy holy nativity:

O come to my heart, Lord Jesus,
There is room in my heart for Thee.

2 Heaven's arches rang When the angels sang, Proclaiming Thy royal degree; But of lowly birth

Cam'st Thou, Lord, on earth, And in great humility:

O come to my heart, Lord Jesus, There is room in my heart for Thee.

Timothy R. Matthews, 1876

And the bird its nest,
In the shade of the cedar tree;
But Thy couch was the sod,

me,

O come to my heart, Lord Jesus,
There is room in my heart for Thee.

4 Thou camest, O Lord,
With the living word

That would set Thy children free;
But with mocking scorn,
And with crown of thorn,

They bore Thee to Calvary:

O come to my heart, Lord Jesus,
Thy cross is my only plea.

5 When heaven's arches shall ring,
And her choir shall sing,
At thy coming to victory,

Let Thy voice call me home,
Saying, "Yet there is room,
There is room at My side for thee."

And my heart shall rejoice, Lord Jesus,
When Thou comest and callest for me.
Emily E. S. Elliott, 1864

Lead us Thy way, and ev'ry day Guide us to see what made Thee great.

20 Jesus, Youth of Nazareth,

Preparing for the bitter strife,
Wilt Thou impart to every heart
Thy perfect purity of life?

Joseph Mainzer, c. 1841

3 O Christ whose words make dear the fields
And hillsides green of Galilee,

Grant us to find, with reverent mind,

The truth Thou saidst should make us free.

4 O suffering Lord on Calvary,

Whom love led on to mortal pain,

We know Thy cross is not a loss
If we Thy love shall truly gain.

5 O Master of abundant life

From natal morn to victory's hour,
We look to Thee; heed Thou our plea,
Teach us to share Thy ageless power.

Restore and quicken, soothe and bless

To hands that work and eyes that see
Give wisdom's heavenly lore,

That whole and sick, and weak and strong,
May praise Thee evermore.
