AND YET THERE IS ROOM




Ye wretched, hungry, starving poor,
Behold a royal feast,
Where mercy spreads her bounteous store
For every humble guest.


See, Jesus stands with open arms,
He calls, He bids you come;
Guilt holds you back, and fear alarms;
But see, there yet is room.


Room in the Saviorís bleeding heart;
There love and pity meet;
Nor will He bid the soul depart
That trembles at His feet.


O come, and with His children taste
The blessing of His love;
While hope attends the sweet repast
Of nobler joys above.


There, with united heart and voice,
Before the eternal throne,
Ten thousand thousand souls rejoice,
In ecstasies unknown.


In him the Father, reconciled,
Invites your souls to come;
The rebel shall be call'd a child.
And kindly welcom'd home.


And yet ten thousand thousand more
Are welcome still to come;
Ye longing souls, the grace adore,
Approach, there yet is room.


---Alternative verses---


See, Jesus stands with open arms,
He calls, He bids you come;
O stay not back, and fear alarms;
For yet there still is room.
