Representative Text

1 A manger, a cross, a grave
Were all that the earth could give
To Him who had come to save,
Who suffered that we might live.

Refrain:
No room for Him, no room for Him,
In the crowded inn,
In the world of sin,
No room for the Lord of all.

2 The world had been made by Him,
Yet offered Him naught beside,
No room could they find for Him,
The Saviour was left outside. [Refrain]

3 He came to His own dear land,
Yet was by His own despised,
But they who received Him knew
Their King, who was thus disguised. [Refrain]

4 The manger, the cross, the grave,
Were each for a season lent,
Yet all things belonged to Him
The King who to Calv’ry went. [Refrain]

5 He never could make His home
Where sin sets its crimson stamp,
He calls us to follow Him,
To go forth without the camp. [Refrain]
