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 decree;
But of lowly birth didst Thou come to earth,
And in great humility. [Refrain]
3 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. [Refrain]
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. [Refrain]
5 When the heav'ns 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!
