O come, Desire of nations, bind
In One the hearts of all mankind;
Bid Thou our sad divisions cease,
And be Thyself our King of Peace.
from O Come, O Come, Emmanuel
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! . . .
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."
And my heart shall rejoice, Lord Jesus,
When thou comest and callest me.
from Thou Didst leave Thy Throne
