Season’s Greetings Saints!

Today’s Daily Bible Reading & Verse

Amos 9 and 2 John

This is love, that we walk according to His commandments. This is the commandment, that as you have heard from the beginning, you should walk in it. 2 John 6


The immense step from the Babe at Bethlehem to the living, reigning triumphant Lord Jesus, returning to earth for His own people – that is the glorious truth proclaimed throughout Scripture. As the bells ring out the joys of Christmas, may we also be alert for the final trumpet that will announce His return, when we shall always be with Him. – Allan Redpath

Today’s Song Story

Thou Didst Leave Thy Throne

Emily Elliott (1836-1897)


Emily Elliott, the author of Thou Didst Leave Thy Throne, was born at Brighton, England, on July 22, 1836.She was always a part of the group of people in the Anglican Church who believed in salvation by faith. She worked tirelessly with the rescue missions who helped the poor. She also helped in the Sunday Schools.
The words of this song were written for the choir and the school children of St Mark’s, her father’s church, in Brighton. She wanted to teach children about preparing for

Christmas and about the birth of Jesus. The words were based on Luke 2:7.
Timothy Richard Matthews composed the music for this hymn with the words in mind. He was born in Bedford, England on November 4th, 1826. He was known as a leading organist in Great Britain. He wrote tunes for more than 100 hymns.

Verse 1

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.
O come to my heart, Lord Jesus,
There is room in my heart for Thee.

Verse 2

Heaven’s arches rang
When the angels sang
Proclaiming Thy royal degree;
But of lowly birth
Didst Thou come to earth,
And in greatest humility.
O come to my heart, Lord Jesus,
There is room in my heart for Thee.

Verse 3

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.
O come to my heart, Lord Jesus,
There is room in my heart for Thee.

Verse 4

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.
O come to my heart, Lord Jesus,
There is room in my heart for Thee.

Verse 5

When the heavens 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.
