1 Saviour, in whose name I pray,
Thou the life, the Truth, the Way;
At the cross of Calvary,
Is there Room for me?

Is there Room for me?
Is there Room for me?
Saviour, on thy loving breast
Let me sweetly rest.

2 At the sprinkled mercy-seat
Let me find acceptance sweet;
Thousands there for refuge flee;
Is there Room for me? [Refrain]

3 Many in thy life below,
Sought thee, pressed by want or woe;
Many now are seeking thee;
Is there Room for me? [Refrain]

4 In that city built on high,
Far beyond this changeful sky,
Loved ones now thy beauty see;
Is there Room for me? [Refrain]
