1 No room for the saviour at Bethlehem's inn,
only a cattle shed;
no room on this earth for the dear Son of God,
nowhere to lay his head.
Only a cross did they give to my Lord,
only a borrowed tomb.
Today he is seeking a place in your heart-
will you still say to him, 'No room'?

2 O Lord, in my heart there's a welcome for you:
gladly I now would say,
'Come in, precious saviour, my heart and my life
both shall be yours today.
Long have you waited and long knocked in vain
outside my heart's closed door:
so cleanse me from sin, then, my Lord, enter in
and live there for evermore.

Hilda M Day
