Where Is the Room?

"love from the Christmas stable... love to be shared all year"

Music by Ron Klusmeier
Words by Shirley Erena Murray
Tune Name: POWELL RIVER

Lyrics as Poetry

Where is the room,
where is the house of Christmas?
Where shall we welcome Jesus,
where are the signs of home?
where are the signs of home?Let Christ have space,
place at the heart of living,
center for birth’s new breathing,
cradle for hope and peace,
cradle for hope and peace.Let there be room,
room for the friend and stranger,
room without hurt or anger,
room for whoever come,
room for whoever come.Let love be here,
love from the Christmas stable,
love at our open table,
love to be shared all year,
love to be shared all year.
