1 To Thee, my Saviour, now I come,
There’s room in my heart for Jesus!
Oh, May I never from Thee roam,
There’s room in my heart for Jesus.

Refrain:
There’s room in my heart for Jesus,
There’s room in my heart for Him,
I’ll sing His praise through all my days,
There’s room in my heart for Jesus.

2 In sin I’ve wandered all too long,
There’s room in my heart for Jesus!
I want to sing redemption’s song,
There’s room in my heart for Jesus. [Refrain]

3 I want to taste the heav’nly joy,
There’s room in my heart for Jesus!
Where sin and strife cannot destroy,
There’s room in my heart for Jesus. [Refrain]

4 Then shall I sing forevermore,
There’s room in my heart for Jesus!
When I have reached that blissful shore,
There’s room in my heart for Jesus. [Refrain]
