VERSE 1: Lo! from the Kingdom of Heav'n, a Prince, Sent by the King;/ Comes to establish His throne on earth, Sing ye, O sing!/ Would you serve the Prince and his word obey,/ Throw open the door of your heart today,/ The Prince will come in and forever stay Sing ye, O sing!
CHORUS: The Prince of Humanity, this is He Come! come and see./ The greatest of gifts that a God could give, Look, look and live!/ Wide as the skies His dominion lies, Even a sparrow he'll not despise;/ Yet there in the manger a Babe he lies, Come! come and see.
VERSE 2: Think not your heart is too poor a place, Look where He lay;/ Think not your service would lack in grace, His call obey!/ There is not an act of the humblest one,/ That will not be blessed, if in love begun;/ Be blessed and increased by this Princely Son, Come ye today./
