Thou Dost Reign on High

Author: Emily E.S. Elliott Meter: Irregular Appears in 380 hymnals Scripture: 2 Corinthians 8:9 First Line: Thou dost reign on high with a kingly crown Lyrics: 1 Thou dost reign on high with a kingly crown, yet thou camest to earth for me, and 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. 2 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: O come to my heart, Lord Jesus, there is room in my heart for thee. 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. 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, thy cross is my only plea. 5 When heav'n'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.

O Love, How Deep, How Broad

Author: Benjamin Webb Meter: 8.8.8.8 Appears in 129 hymnals Scripture: 2 Corinthians 8:9 First Line: O Love, how deep, how broad, how high Lyrics: 1 O Love, how deep, how broad, how high, how passing thought and fantasy: that God, the Son of God, should take our mortal form for mortals' sake. 2 For us baptized, for us he bore his holy fast and hungered sore; for us temptations sharp he knew, for us the tempter overthrew. 3 For us he prayed, for us he taught, for us his daily works he wrought, by words and signs and actions, thus still seeking not himself, but us. 4 For us to evil power betrayed, scourged, mocked, in purple robe arrayed, he bore the shameful cross and death, for us gave up his dying breath. 5 For us he rose from death again; for us he went on high to reign; for us he sent his Spirit here to guide, to comfort, and to cheer. 6 All glory to our Lord and God for love so deep, so high, so broad– the Trinity whom we adore forever and forevermore.

Once in royal David's city

Author: Cecil Frances Alexander (1818-1895) Meter: 8.7.8.7.7.7 Appears in 374 hymnals Scripture: 2 Corinthians 8:9 Lyrics: 1 Once in royal David's city stood a lowly cattle shed, where a mother laid her Baby in a manger for his bed. Mary was that mother mild, Jesus Christ her little child. 2 He came down to earth from heaven who is God and Lord of all, and his shelter was a stable, and his cradle was a stall. With the poor and meek and lowly lived on earth our Saviour holy. 3 And our eyes at last shall see him, through his own redeeming love; for that Child so dear and helpless is our Lord in heaven above; and he leads his children on to the place where he is gone. 4 Not in that poor lowly stable, with the oxen standing by, we shall see him; but in heaven, set at God's right hand on high, where his children gather round, bright like stars, with glory crowned.

All Praise to Thee, Eternal Lord

Author: Martin Luther Meter: 8.8.8.8 Appears in 105 hymnals Scripture: 2 Corinthians 8:9 Lyrics: 1 All praise to thee, eternal Lord, clothed in a garb of flesh and blood; choosing a manger for thy throne, while worlds on worlds are thine alone. 2 Once did the skies before thee bow; a virgin's arms contain thee now: angels who did in thee rejoice now listen for thine infant voice. 3 A little child, thou art our guest, that weary ones in thee may rest; forlorn and lowly is thy birth, that we may rise to heav'n from earth. 4 Thou comest in the darksome night to make us children of the light, to make us, in the realms divine, like thine own angels round thee shine. 5 All this for us thy love hath done; by this to thee our love is won: for this we tune our cheerful lays, and shout our thanks in ceaseless praise.

In the bleak midwinter

Author: Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830-1894) Meter: Irregular Appears in 78 hymnals Scripture: 2 Corinthians 8:9 Lyrics: 1 In the bleak midwinter frosty wind made moan, earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone: snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow, in the bleak midwinter, long ago. 2 Our God, heaven cannot hold him, nor earth sustain; heaven and earth shall flee away when he comes to reign: in the bleak midwinter a stable place sufficed the Lord God Almighty, Jesus Christ. 3 Enough for him whom cherubim worship night and day, a breastful of milk and a mangerful of hay: enough for him whom angels fall down before, the ox and ass and camel which adore. 4 Angels and archangels may have gathered there, cherubim and seraphim thronged the air, but only his mother, in her maiden bliss, worshiped the Beloved with a kiss. 5 What can I give him, poor as I am? If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb, if I were a wise man I would do my part, yet what I can I give him, give my heart.
