No room in the inn to await the coming morn
No room in the inn for a baby to be born
Little comfort at his birth for the King of all the earth
No room; no room.
No room in the inn for this stranger from afar
No room in the inn -- no the doors are locked and barred
Not a chamber, rich or poor, nor a place upon the floor
No room, no room
Such has his welcome been.

Chorus:
Make room, oh my heart, turn thou not thy Lord away
Make room, oh my heart, bid him welcome -- bid him stay
Prepare him all thy best
Keep him evermore thy guest
No room, Lord, for thee?
No room? Stay with me!
The finest my soul can afford
Shall be all thine own, dearest Lord.

No room 'mid the toils or the pleasures of our day
No room in our lives for a baby on the hay
Not a moment to abide, kneeling at the manger-side
No room, no room
No room 'mid the cares of the heedless sons of men
No room in our world for the Child of Bethlehem
Not an hour in our haste left unfilled to give him place
No room, no room
Such has his welcome been.
(Repeat chorus)
