Make room for Jesus, room, sad heart

Full Text

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

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.

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

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.
