Thou Didst Leave Thy Throne  Misc. Gospel

[D]Thou didst leave Thy [Em]throne [A]and Thy [Bm]kingly [F#]crown,
When Thou [A]camest to [D]earth for [A]me;
But in Beth[D]lehem’s [Ddim7]home was there [A]found no [E7]room
For Thy [A]holy na[E7]tivit[A]y.

O [D]come to my heart, Lord [G]Je[A]sus,
There is [D]room in my [A7]heart for [D]Thee.

Heaven’s arches rang when the angels sang,
Proclaiming Thy royal degree;
But of lowly birth didst Thou come to earth,
And in great humility.


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


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.


When the heavens shall ring, and the angels 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.”

My heart shall rejoice, Lord Jesus,
When Thou comest and callest for me.
