There was no room in Bethlehem
There was no room in bethlehem
for him who left his throne
to seek the lost at countless cost
and make their griefs his own:
but there was room at Calvary
upon a cross of shame
for him to die, uplifted high,
and bear the sinner’s blame.
2. There was no room in Bethlehem,
and in the world today
man will not give him room to live
but bids him turn away;
but there is room at Calvary,
and there he stands to give
a home to all who heed his call
and look to him and live.
3. There was no room in Bethlehem
for Christ, the Prince of heaven
come down to earth in human birth
that man might be forgiven:
but there is room at Calvary
for sinners to abide,
and all who come will find a home
in Jesus crucified.
