Just Ask Him in to Stay

Representative Text

1 Our hearts are light and cheerful,
We're full of joy today;
The Savior is our welcome Guest--
We've asked Him in to stay.

Just ask Him in to stay.
He'll brighten ev'ry day,
His grace is so abounding,
He'll drive all gloom away.

2 Each day is full of gladness,
And ev'ry month is May;
The Savior is our helpful Friend--
We're asked Him in to stay. [Chorus]

3 Swinging every heart wide open,
For Christ, the Truth, the Way,
Is waiting with a blessing race--
Just ask Him in to stay. [Chorus]
