5793. Room for Jesus

1. Is there any room for Jesus?
He who died on Calvary,
He who standeth, knocking, waiting,
Pleading with you tenderly.

Room for Jesus, room for Jesus,
Let Him in your heart today,
Throwing every window open,
O receive Him while you may.

2. We have room for worldly pleasures,
Cares of life crowd every day,
And our hearts and minds are burdened
While the Lord is turned away. [Refrain]

3. Will you not make room for Jesus,
For the Christ, the Crucified?
Is there not some place to enter
In the soul for which He died? [Refrain]

4. Room and time and thought for Jesus,
Hasten to accept His grace
Ere the heart grows cold and careless,
And His pleading voice shall cease. [Refrain]
