Have You Any Room for Jesus (Hymn)

Have You Any Room for Jesus
Daniel Whittle (1878)

Have you any room for Jesus,
He who bore your load of sin?
As He knocks and asks admission,
Sinners, will you let Him in?

Refrain

Room for Jesus, King of Glory!
Hasten now His Word obey;
Swing the heart’s door widely open,
Bid Him enter while you may.

Room for pleasure, room for business,
But for Christ the Crucified,
Not a place that He can enter,
In the heart for which He died?

Refrain

Have you any room for Jesus,
As in grace He calls again?
O today is time accepted,
Tomorrow you may call in vain.

Refrain

Room and time now give to Jesus,
Soon will pass God’s day of grace;
Soon thy heart left cold and silent,
And thy Savior’s pleading cease.

Refrain

This is a great song with a great message and a great question.  Do we have any room for Jesus?  As the song says, we have plenty of room for business and room for pleasure, but do we have room for our Saviour?  How often have we put Him off, put off reading His word, put off talking to Him, so that we can do something for ourselves?  That is a tough question.

  1. Thanks Ben! 🙂

    Here goes the Sunday School memories again !

    Thank you for sharing that perspective on making room for Him. Funny, it’s easy to think that the room is His once you invite Him in. Thanks for adding the rest 🙂

    Blessings,

  2. Thank you, Ben! This is a wonderful hymn. It makes me think of there being no room at the inn when Jesus was born. God bless you as you make room for Him in your heart!
