THOU DIDST LEAVE THY THRONE and Thy kingly crown,

When Thou camest to earth for me;

But in Bethlehem’s home there was found no room

For Thy holy nativity:

O come to my heart, Lord Jesus!

There is room in my heart for Thee.

 

Heaven’s arches rang when the angels sang,

Proclaiming Thy royal degree;

But of lowly birth cam’st Thou, Lord, on earth,

And in great humility,

O come to my heart, Lord Jesus!

There is room in my heart for Thee.

 

The foxes found rest, and the birds had their nest,

In the shade of the cedar 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.

 

Thou camest, O Lord, with the living word

That should set Thy children free;

But with mocking scorn, and with crown of thorn,

They bore Thee to Calvary.

O come to my heart, Lord Jesus!

Thy cross is my only plea.

 

When heaven’s arches shall ring, and her choirs shall 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.’

And my heart shall rejoice, Lord Jesus,

When Thou comest and callest for me.

    Emily E. Steele Elliott.


LOVE DIVINE, all loves excelling,

Joy of heaven to earth come down!

Fix in us Thy humble dwelling,

All Thy faithful mercies crown.

Jesus, Thou art all compassion,

Pure unbounded love Thou art;

Visit us with Thy salvation,

Enter every trembling heart.

 

Breathe, O breathe Thy loving Spirit

Into every troubled breast!

Let us all in Thee inherit,

Let us find Thy promised rest.

Take away the love of sinning;

Alpha and Omega be;

End of faith, as its beginning,

Set our hearts at liberty.

 

Come, Almighty to deliver,

Let us all Thy grace receive;

Suddenly return, and never,

Never more Thy temples leave.

Thee we would be always blessing,

Serve Thee as Thy hosts above,

Pray, and praise Thee without ceasing,

Glory in Thy perfect love.

 

Finish then Thy new creation,

Pure and spotless let us be;

Let us see Thy great salvation

Perfectly restored in Thee!

Changed from glory into glory,

Till in heaven we take our place;

Till we cast our crowns before Thee,

Lost in wonder, love and praise.

    Charles Wesley.


JESUS, STAND AMONG US

At the meeting of our lives;

Be our sweet agreement

At the meeting of our eyes.

O Jesus, we love You, so we gather here;

Join our hearts in unity and take away our fear.

 

So to You we’re gathering

Out of each and every land;

Christ the love between us

At the joining of our hands.

O Jesus, we love You, so we gather here;

Join our hearts in unity and take away our fear.

 

Jesus, stand among us

At the breaking of the bread;

Join us as one body

As we worship You, our Head.

O Jesus, we love You, so we gather here;

Join our hearts in unity and take away our fear.

    Graham Kendrick.


STAND UP! STAND UP FOR JESUS,

Ye soldiers of the cross!

Lift high His royal banner,

It must not suffer loss.

From victory unto victory

His army He shall lead,

Till every foe is vanquished,

And Christ is Lord indeed.

 

Stand up, stand up for Jesus!

The trumpet-call obey;

Forth to the mighty conflict

In this His glorious day!

Ye that are His, now serve Him

Against unnumbered foes;

Let courage rise with danger,

And strength to strength oppose.

 

Stand up, stand up for Jesus!

Stand in His strength alone;

The arm of flesh will fail you,

Ye dare not trust your own.

Put on the gospel armour,

Each piece put on with prayer;

Where duty calls, or danger,

Be never wanting there.

 

Stand up, stand up for Jesus!

The strife will not be long;

This day the noise of battle,

The next the victor’s song.

To him that overcometh

A crown of life shall be;

He with the King of glory

Shall reign eternally.

    George Duffield.
