Hymn/Song Information

Thou didst leave Thy throne And Thy king




Thou didst leave Thy throne
and Thy kingly crown
When Thou camest to earth for me:
But in Bethlehem's home
Was there was found no room
For Thy holy nativity;

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


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.


The foxes found rest,
and the birds their nest
In the shade of the cedar tree;
But Thy couch was the sod
O Thou Son of God,
In the deserts of Galilee;

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


Thou camest, O Lord,
with the living word
That should set Thy people free;
But with mocking scorn,
and with crown of thorn,
they bore Thee to Calvary;

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


When heaven's arches ring
And her choirs shall sing,
At Thy coming to victory,
Let Thy voice call me home,
saying "Yes there is room,
There is room at my side for thee";

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