If Jesus Came to Your House
If Jesus came to your house to spend a
day or two
If he came unexpectedly, I wonder what
Oh, I know you’d give your nicest room
to such an honored Guest,
And all the food you’d serve to Him
would be the very best,
And you keep assuring Him
you’re glad to have Him there
That serving Him in your own home is
joy beyond compare.
But when you saw Him coming,
would you meet Him at the door
With arms outstretched in welcome to
your heavenly Visitor?
Or would you have to change your
clothes before you let Him in?
Or hide some magazines and put the
Bible where they’d been?
Would you turn off the radio and hope
He hadn’t heard?
And wish you hadn’t uttered that last,
loud, hasty word?
Would you hide your worldly music and
put some hymn books out?
Could you let Jesus walk right in, or
would you rush about?
And I wonder if the Savior spent
a day or two with you,
Would you go right on doing the things
you always do?
Would you go right on saying the things
you always say?
Would life for you continue as it does
from day to day?
Would your family conversation keep
up its usual pace?
And would you find it hard each meal
to say a table grace?
Would you sing the songs you always
sing, and read the books you read,
And let him know the things on which
your mind and spirit feed?
Would you take Jesus with you every-
where you’d planned to go?
Or would you, maybe, change your plans
for just a day or so?
Would you be glad to have Him meet
your very closest friends?
Or would you hope they’d stay away
until His visit ends?
Would you be glad to have Him stay
forever on and on?
Or would you sigh with great relief
when He at last was gone?
It might be interesting to know the
things that you would do
If Jesus Christ in person came to spend
some time with you.
