Any Room for Jesus?


Verse 1
Have you any room for Jesus?
When we gather shall we say,
That the foll’wers of the Master
Have no time for prayer to-day?
He was cradled in a manger;
His own angels sang the hymn
Of rejoicing at his coming,
Yet there was no room for him.

Verse 2
O my brothers, are we wiser,
Are we better, now than they?
Have we any room for Jesus
In the life we live to-day?
Room for pleasure, doors wide open;
And for business; but for him,
Only here and there a manger,
Like to that at Bethlehem.

Verse 3
Have you any time for Jesus?
O my brothers, you and I,
When a few more days are ended,
Must have room and time to die.
Room for Jesus–King of glory!
Time for him all times obey;
Love for him who came to save us–
Let us ask these things to-day.
