    Verse 1
    ''Yet there is room!'' The Lamb's bright hall of song
    With its fair glory, beckons thee along
    Room, room, still room! oh, enter, enter now!

    Verse 2
    Day is declining, and the sun is low,
    The shadows lengthen, light makes haste to go
    Room, room, still room! oh, enter, enter now!

    Verse 3
    The bridal hall is filling for the feast;
    Pass in! Pass in! and be the Bridegroom's guest:
    Room, room, still room! oh, enter, enter now!

    Verse 4
    Yet there is room! still open stands the gate ---
    The gate of love; it is not yet too late:
    Room, room, still room! oh, enter, enter now!

    Verse 5
    Pass in! pass! That banquet is for thee:
    That cup of everlasting love is free;
    Room, room, still room! oh, enter, enter now!

    Verse 6
    All heaven is there! all joy! Go in, go in!
    The angels beckon thee the prize to win:
    Room, room, still room! oh, enter, enter now!

    Verse 7
    Louder and sweeter sounds the loving call;
    Come, lingerer, come! enter the festal hall:
    Room, room, still room! oh, enter, enter now!

    Verse 8
    It fills, it fills, that hall of jubilee!
    Make haste! 'tis not too ful for thee!
    Room, room, still room! oh, enter, enter now!

    Verse 9
    Ere night that gate may close, and seal thy doom,
    Then the last, low, long cry, ''No room, no room!`
    No room, no room! oh, woeful cry! --- ''No room!''
