No Room In The Inn

Written by George Leon Pike, Sr.

1. May I sleep in your barn tonight Mister?

For I’m meek and I’m lowly in heart,

In the world all alone I’m a stranger,

I’ve no home so I’m knocking on your heart.

 

2. I won’t ask to come in by the fireside,

I’ll just dwell in a cave or a den,

I won’t eat of your food, oh please Mister,

But I’ll die on the cross to be your friend.

 

3. Through the heat and the cold I must wander,

With the stars up above for my guide,

If there’s no shoes on my feet I won’t murmur,

In the house of my friends I must die.

 

4. I must walk every step up to calvary,

There you’ll place the cruel thorns on my brow,

Though you beat on my back I still love you,

With the nails in my hand I’ll still care.

 

Chorus:

Is there room in your inn for a mother?

Was the plea Joseph made in the town.

While Mary travailed there in sorrow,

Jesus came to the world, they turned him down.
