Lyrics

Room at the cross for a trembling soul,
Room at the cross for you;
Where the sin-laden may be made whole,
Room at the cross for you.

Refrain

Room, room, room at the cross,
Room at the cross for you;
Room, room, room at the cross,
Room at the cross for you.

Refrain

Room at the cross for a breaking heart,
Room at the cross for you;
Choose, then, like Mary, the better part,
Room at the cross for you.

Refrain

Room at the cross for earth’s weary and worn,
Room at the cross for you;
Come, then, oh! come, then, ye souls who mourn,
Room at the cross for you.
