1 O come, my falt’ring brother come,
There is room in the love of Jesus!
He calls the vilest sinner home,
There is room in the love of Jesus!

Refrain:
There is always room,
There is always room in the precious love of Jesus
For the high or low no matter whom,
There is room in the love of Jesus!

2 He knows how great your load of sin,
There is room in the love of Jesus!
And yet He longs to take you in,
There is room in the love of Jesus! [Refrain]

3 He cares not how or whence you came,
There is room in the love of Jesus!
He is your friend, He knows your name,
There is room in the love of Jesus! [Refrain]

4 And tho’ the mire is dark and deep,
There is room in the love of Jesus!
His pow’r is strong to save and keep,
There is room in the love of Jesus! [Refrain]
