Thou Dist Leave Thy Throne


Thou didst leave Thy throne and Thy kingly crown

when Thou camest to earth for me
but in Bethlehem’s home was there found no room
for Thy holy nativity.


Heaven’s arches rang when the angels sang,
proclaiming Thy royal degree;
but of lowly birth didst Thou come to earth,
and in great humility.


The foxes found rest, and the birds their nest
in the shade of the forest tree;
but Thy couch was the sod, O Thou Son of God,
in the deserts of Galilee.


Thou camest, O Lord, with the living word
that should set Thy people free
but with mocking scorn and with crown of thorn
they bore Thee to Calvary.


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,


“My heart shall rejoice, Lord Jesus,
when thou comest and callest for me!
Refrain: O Come to my heart, Lord Jesus –
there is room in my heart for Thee!


– Emily E. S. Elliott, 1836-1897

Christ Died For The Ungodly

by Horatius Bonar

The divine testimony concerning man is, that he is a sinner. God bears witness against him, not for him; and testifies that "there is none righteous, no, not one"; that there is "none that doeth good"; none "that understandeth"; none that even seeks after God, and, still more, none that loves Him (Psa. 14:1-3; Rom. 3:10-12). God speaks of man kindly, but severely; as one yearning over a lost child, yet as one who will make no terms with sin, and will "by no means clear the guilty." <continued>
