1 When Christ was born in Bethlehem,
Uncrowned with royal diadem,
The child within the manger lay,
No room within the inn that day;
No room for Christ, the Holy Child,
No room for Christ, the meek and mild
Though ages since have come and gone,
So many crowd out God’s dear Son.
2 No room for Christ has wayward youth,
And heedless hearts turn from His truth;
By business, pleasure crowded out,
And life is spent in darkness, doubt;
If for Him here there is no room,
How dread at last will be the doom;
Forever banished from Him there,
In deep, unspeakable despair.
