Carol Service 2018 Dunfanaghy

No room for the baby in Bethlehem’s Inn,
Only a cattle shed!
No room on this earth for the dear Son of God
Nowhere to lay His head.
Only a cross did they give to our Lord,
Only a borrowed tomb.
Yet today He is seeking a place in your heart –
Will you still say to Him, ‘No room’?

No room for the Saviour today it seems,
So busy we just don’t have time.
Only contempt do we hear on TV
For the Lord of all glory sublime.
Selfishness, pride and idolatry reign
And are dragging us down to our doom!
God’s grace isn’t wanted, salvation despised
By a world that hasn’t got room.

Oh we’ve room for gambling, violence, sex,
Drunkenness, lying and more,
Spiralling deeper in darkness and pain
Unable to find the door.
Jesus would save you, bind up your wounds
And assure you of Heaven to come.
In stubborn defiance will you remain?
Will you still say to Him, ‘No room’?

The King will return here for judgement soon.
Creation will bow to His name.
Among His people that day will you be
Or crying out in terror and shame?
Let Him find room in your heart and your life,
Let Him have first place of all.
Turn from your sin, and welcome the Christ.
Be ready to answer His call.

When heavens arches ring and her choirs shall sing
At His coming in victory,
May His voice call us home saying ‘Yes, there is room,
There is room at my side for thee’.
And my heart shall rejoice Lord Jesus
When you come and you call for me.
Come now to my heart Lord Jesus,
There is room in my heart for Thee.
