In My Father's House.

There is a place very special to me
where I hope someday to spend all eternity.
In my Father's House,
I will never be turned away, or be told
there's no room for me to stay.

But there was no room at the inn,
for my beloved Lord. He was
born in a manger, among
the lowly in life. He is
my beloved Lord and
Savior Jesus Christ!

Shepards and angels came to worship you,
and the wisemen came from countries afar
to bow down before you and pay homage to you.

In my father's house there is room
for one and all,
thanks to the newborn babe
born in a manger's stall!
