Lyrics

There is room in the heart of Jesus
For the weary and worn and sad;
There is room in the heart of Jesus,
And a welcome to make them glad.

Refrain

There is room, there is room,
There is room in the heart of Jesus;
There is room, there is room,
There is room in His heart for thee.

There is room in the heart of Jesus,
And He cometh in grace to all,
With a message of full forgiveness,
With a sweet and a loving call.

Refrain

There is room in the heart of Jesus;
Yes, there’s room: come and find it true.
Why in sin will you longer wander?
Come, oh come, while He calls for you.
