Representative Text

1 Make room, make room for Jesus,
Whose birth the angels sang,
When Heav’n and earth together,
With Hallelujahs rang.

Throw open wide the portals,
Of every doubting heart,
That Jesus now may enter
And never more depart.

2 Make room, make room for Jesus,
Our Saviour, Lord and King,
Who left His Father’s glory,
The gift of life to bring. [Refrain]

3 Make room, make room for Jesus,
Our great exalted Head,
Who left His Father’s glory,
And suffered in our stead. [Refrain]

4 Lo, at the door He standeth,
The night dew on His brow,
O, do not keep Him waiting,
But let Him enter now. [Refrain]
