1 Make room for Jesus! room! sad heart,
Beguiled and sick of sin;
Bid ev'ry alien guest depart,
And rise and let him in.

Make room, sad heart, make room, make room!
Bid alien guests depart,
Oh, let the Master in, sad heart;
Arise, make room, make room!

2 Make room for Jesus! room! make room!
His hand is at the door;
He comes to banish guilt and gloom,
And bless thee more and more. [Chorus]

3 Make room for Jesus! soul of mine,
He waits response to-day;
His smile is peace, his grace, divine,
Oh, turn him not away. [Chorus]

4 Make room for Jesus! by and by,
'Midst saint and seraphim,
He'll welcome to his throne on high
The soul that welcomed him. [Chorus]
