I’ll bet it really broke your heart
when you had no room in your inn.
They were such a pleasant couple
did you feel your head in a spin?
Did you ask your wife for some advice
and did you both rack your brain
to try to find a solution?
Did it cause you hearts much pain?
Was it you or your wife’s idea
to let them stay in the stable?
Did you feel bad to suggest it
as you sat at the kitchen table?
You could have been hard hearted
and everyone would understand.
So what pushed you for a solution
that was the best you had planned?
How gracious they must have been
that you went the second mile.
I’ll bet they left your office and
and gave you a big warm smile.
Could you give advice to us
when we don’t have room for God today?
Our hearts get crowded this time of year
and we hardly take time to pray.
Tell us all the blessing you had
because you found room for God
so our Christmas preparations
won’t be just a big façade.
