Hymn 67
Thou didst leave Thy throne

1. Thou didst leave Thy throne And Thy kingly crown When Thou camest to earth for me, But in Bethlehemís 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. Heavenís arches rang When the angels sang, Proclaiming thy royal degree; But of lowly birth Camíst Thou, Lord, on earth, And in great humility; O come to my heart, Lord Jesus; There is room in my heart for Thee. 3. The foxes found rest, And the bird its nest, In the shade of the forest 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. 4. 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. 5. When heavenís arches ring, And her choirs shall sing, At Thy coming to victory, Let Thy voice call me home, Saying ĎYet there is room, There is room at My side for thee!í And my heart shall rejoice, Lord Jesus, When Thou comest and callest for me.
