1 No beautiful chamber,
No soft cradle bed,
No place but a manger,
Nowhere for His head;
No praises of gladness,
No tho't of their sin,
No glory but sadness,
No room in the inn.

No room, no room, for Jesus,
Oh, give Him welcome free,
Lest you should hear at Heaven’s gate,
"There is no room for thee."

2 No sweet consecration,
No seeking His part,
No humiliation,
No place in the heart;
No tho't of the Savior,
No sorrow for sin,
No prayer for His favor,
No room in the inn. [Chorus]

3 No one to receive Him,
No welcome while here,
No balm to relieve Him,
No staff but a spear;
No seeking His treasure,
No weeping for sin,
No doing His pleasure,
No room in the inn. [Chorus]
