If Jesus came to your house to spend a day or two -
If He came
unexpectedly, I wonder what you'd do.
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
And you would keep assuring Him you're glad to have him there -
serving Him in your own home is joy beyond compare.
But when you saw Him coming, would you meet Him at the door
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?
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 it's usual pace?
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 everywhere 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?
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
If Jesus Christ in person came to spend some time with you.
