Representative Text

1 You always have room in your sin-loving heart
For pleasures that stain and debase;
But still in your life Christ is taking no part—
No room for the Giver of grace.

No room no room,
As you the world go through!
Some day you may come to the portal of home
And find there’s no room for you!

2 You always have room for both envy and greed,
And dreams of position and pow’r;
But none for the Savior, the friend that you need,—
Not even for one little hour. [Refrain]

3 The things that you love all are passing away,
The risk you are running is great!
For, when you have room for the Savior, some day,
O soul, you may find it too late! [Refrain]
