Hymn/Song Information

When Jesus left the throne of God




When Jesus left the throne of God,
He chose an humble birth;
A man of grief, like, us he trod
A lonely path on earth.

2. Like him, may we be found below.
In wisdom's paths of peace;
Like him, in grace and knowledge, grow,
As years and strength increase.


Sweet were his words, and kind his look,
When mothers round him pressed;
Their infants, in his arms, he took,
And on his bosom blessed.


When Jesus into Salem rode,
The children sang around;
For joy, they plucked the palms, and strewed
Their garments on the ground.


"Hosanna!" our glad voices raise
"Hosanna to our King!"
Could we forget our Saviour's praise,
The stones themselves would sing.
