Representative Text

1 From heav’n to earth he cometh down;
No gem has he, nor purple crown,
No scepter bright, nor royal crown:
Yet King of kings is Jesus!

Chorus:
Yes, King of kings truly is he;
His name the joy of earth shall be;
Throned in the light,
Glorious and bright,
Jesus the Lord of all.

2 No palace doors wide open stand,
No martial music stirs the land
To greet the Guest so close at hand:
Yet King of kings is Jesus! [Chorus]

3 His coming brings to earth good cheer,
Sweet memories forever dear;
His love brings heav’n to mortals near,
For King of kings is Jesus! [Chorus]

Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
