Representative Text

1 Room for the world at the cross of the Savior,
Room where forgiveness He waits to bestow;
Room where so many have laid down their burdens,
Room at the waters of cleansing that flow.

Say, will you come? The Spirit now is pleading;
Jesus above for you is interceding:
Why will you still, His tender love unheeding,
Perish forever in sight of the cross?

2 Room for the world in the fold of the Savior,
Room at the feast by His mercy prepared;
Come, ye that hunger, His bounty receiving,
Feed on the blessings that millions have shared. [Refrain]

3 Room for the world in the ark of the Savior,
Yonder the tempest is sweeping apace;
No one but Jesus can shield and defend you,
Haste to the shelter and refuge of grace. [Refrain]

4 Room for the world in the arms of the Savior,
Room for the friendless, the lone and oppressed;
There will He comfort the poor and forsaken,
There to the weary He giveth sweet rest. [Refrain]
