2 When Jesus enters meek and lowly,
To fill the home with sweetest peace;
And found from sin complete release,
And hearts divided love again.
And moves the people with His love,
Our hearts His truth and blessings prove,
He works a change in heart and life;
To young and old, to man and wife;
Faith, love and hope are now conferred.
Then loosed is every Satan's band,
The soul is safe in Jesus' hand:
His rod and staff shall never fail.
Find entrance where He is unknown,
That heathendom may be o’erthrown,
In heathen land and Christian home!
Hark, how He pleads our souls to win!
To sup with him He enters in!
When Jesus comes to be thy guest!
O heed, my soul, what He doth say;
And turn Him not from thee away.
Thou blessed of the Lord, come in.
Forever bide with me and mine,
And gloom of death Thy light divine:
A - wake and hearken, for he brings Glad tid-ings of
the King of kings.
2 Then cleansed be every Christian
breast And furnished for so great a guest; Yea, let us each our hearts prepare
For Christ to come and enter there. 3 For Thou art our salvation, Lord,
Our refuge and our great reward; Without Thy grace we waste away, Like flowers that wither and decay.
4 To heal the sick stretch out Thine
hand, And bid the fallen sinner stand; Once more upon Thy people shine,
And fill the world with love divine. 5 All praise, eternal Son, to Thee,
Whose advent set Thy people free:

2 Hark, a voice from yonder manger,
Soft and sweet,
You are freed;
All you need
Here let all,
Great and small,
Hail the Star
That from far
Weep no more,
For the door
Where no cross,
Pain or loss
