Lord, you left your throne and your kingly crown

Lord, you left your throne and your kingly crown
when you came to this earth for me;
but in Bethlehem’s home there was found no room
for your holy nativity:
O come to my heart, Lord Jesus,
there is room when you come to me.

2. Heaven’s arches rang when the angels sang
proclaiming your royal degree,
but in lowly birth, Lord, you came to earth
and in great humility:
O come to my heart, Lord Jesus,
there is room when you come to me.

3. The foxes found rest, and the birds their nest
in the shade of the cedar tree;
but no place was known you could call your own
in the hillsides of Galilee.
O come to my heart, Lord Jesus,
there is room when you come to me.

4. When you came, O Lord, with the living word
that should set your people free,
then with mocking scorn and with crown of thorn
they led you to Calvary:
O come to my heart, Lord Jesus,
your cross is my only plea.

5. When heaven’s arches ring and its choirs shall sing
at your coming to victory,
let your voice call me home, saying, ‘Yes, there is room!’
-there is room at your side for me!
Then my heart shall rejoice, Lord Jesus,
when you come and you call for me.
