Lyrics

There is room in the fold of the Shep­herd
For those who have wan­dered away;
There is room in the heart of the Sav­ior
For ev­ery poor sin­ner to­day.

Refrain

Room, room, room for you,
In the heart of the Sav­ior above;
Room for me, room for you,
Come, rest in His won­der­ful love.

There is room in the field of the Mas­ter
And work for His ser­vants to do;
A use for each tal­ent He gives you,
A sheaf to be gar­nered by you.

Refrain

There is room in the ranks of the Cap­tain
For sol­diers to fight against sin;
And all who are trust­ful and faith­ful
Thro’ Him will the vic­to­ry win.

Refrain

There is room in the beau­ti­ful ci­ty,
And Je­sus has op­ened the door;
He will gather the least of His child­ren
Where sor­row shall come ne­ver­more.
