. met in thee to - night. A - men.

The hopes and fears of all the years Are

to

A - bove thy deep and dream - less sleep

Yet in thy dark streets shin - eth

No ear may hear His coming,

But in this world of sin,
Where meek souls will receive Him still,

The dear Christ enters in.

2 For Christ is born of Mary,

And gathered all above,
While mortals sleep the angels keep

Their watch of wondering love.
O morning stars, together

Proclaim the holy birth
And praises sing to God the King,

And peace to men on earth.

3 How silently, how silently

The wondrous gift is given!
So God imparts to human hearts

The blessings of His heaven.

4 O holy Child of Bethlehem!

Descend to us, we pray;.
Cast out our sin, and enter in,

Be born in us to-day.
We hear the Christmas angels,

The great glad tidings tell;
O come to us, abide with us,
Our Lord Emmanuel! Amen.

Phillips BROOKS

come to my heart, Lord Je-sus! There is room in my heart for Thee. A - men.

Use the slurs and quarter notes as the words require
2 Heaven's arches rang when the angels sang,

Proclaiming Thy royal degree;
But in lowly birth didst Thou come to earth,
And in great humility.

Oh, come to my heart, Lord Jesus!

There is room in my heart for Thee.
3 The foxes found rest, and the birds had their nest

In the shade of the forest tree;
But Thy couch was the sod, O Thou Son of God,
In the desert of Galilee.

Oh, 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.

Oh, come to my heart, Lord Jesus!

Thy Cross is my only plea.
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.”

And my heart shall rejoice, Lord Jesus,
When Thou comest and callest me. Amen.

2 Hark! a voice from yonder manger,

Love Him Who with love is yearning; Soft and sweet, doth entreat,

Hail the Star that from far “Flee from woe and danger!

Bright with hope is burning! Brethren,come! from all that grieves you 4 Thee, dear Lord, with heed I'll cherish, You are freed; all you need

Live to Thee, and with Thee I will surely give you."

Dying, shall not perish; 3 Come, then, let us hasten yonder!

But shall dwell with Thee for ever, Here let all, great and small,

Far on high, in the joy Kneel in awe and wonder;

That can alter never. Amen. PAULUS GERHARDT. Tr. CATHERINE WINKWORTH
