Tú dejaste tu trono

Representative Text

1 Tú dejaste tu trono y corona por mi,
Al venir en Belén a nacer;
Mas a Ti no fue dado el entrar al mesón.
y en pesebre te hicieron yacer.

Ven a mi corazón, ¡oh Cristo!,
Pues en él hay lugar para Ti.

2 Alabanzas celestes los ángeles dan
En que rinden al Vergo loor;
Mas humilde viniste a la tierra, Señor,
A dar vida al más vil pecador. [Coro]

3 Siempre pueden las zorras sus cuevas tener,
Y las aves sus nidos también;
Mas el hijo del hombre no tuvo un lugar
En el cal reclinara su sien. [Coro]

4 Alabanzas sublimes los cielos darán
Cuando vengas glorioso de allí
Y tu voz entre nubes dirá: "Ven a Mí,
Que hay lugar junto a Mí para ti."

Elliott, Emily Elizabeth Steele, third daughter of the late Rev. E. B. Elliott, of Brighton, author of the Horae Apocalypticae was born at Brighton, and now [1887] lives in London. She has contributed hymns, some of which have obtained wide acceptance, to the choir manuals, and Additional Hymns, 1866 (Nos. 8, 34) for use in St. Mark's Church, Brighton; to the Church Missionary Juvenile Instructor, which she edited for six years. Her Chimes of Consecration, a volume of 70 hymns and poems, was published in 1873, and her Chimes for Daily Service in 1880. The latter contains 71 hymns in two parts. The second part of 48 hymns is also published separately as Under the Pillow, for use as a cheap large type hymn-book (with corresponding tune-book)… Go to person page >

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
