Welcome!  Hymns have been and continue to be a real source of inspiration to me.  My desire in this blog is to share special hymns with my readers hoping that the words will minister to them, especially in times of great personal need.  If one of these hymns ministers to you, please take time to leave a comment so that I know that my blog is helping others as much as it helps me. Sometimes I will also provide a link where you can go to hear the hymn played.  So, please join me here each week and sing along as we praise God together.

HE BECAME POOR ... CONTINUED

Thanks to my cousin, Karen, we now have the other verses of the hymn "He Became Poor". Here they are.

They borrowed a colt--lowly beast for a King, Jesus, my Saviour
No court gave Him honor, no carillons ring for Jesus, my Lord.
His were the planets and stars in the sky;
His were the valleys and mountains so high;
His, all earth's riches from pole unto pole,
But He became poor to ransom my soul.

He borrowed a room for the Passover Feast, Jesus my Saviour;
Becoming both Servant and Heavenly Priest, this Jesus, my Lord.
His were the planets and stars in the sky;
His were the valleys and mountains so high;
His, all earth's riches from pole unto pole,
But He became poor to ransom my soul.

They borrowed a tomb for the Crucified One, Jesus, my Saviour
No monument royal for God's only Son for Jesus, my Lord.
His were the planets and stars in the sky;
His were the valleys and mountains so high;
His, all earth's riches from pole unto pole,
But He became poor to ransom my soul.

I sang this song many, many years ago as a solo, and would love to find the music again. Any help would be appreciated.

On Amazon, I found a book with like 15 songs and one of the songs was "He Became Poor". The book was called "Sacred Songs from Victor Glenn's Evangelistic Faith Missions Broadcast."
