If Jesus Came To Your House

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 you’d do.
Oh, I know you’d give him your nicest room to such an honored guest,
And all the food you’d serve Him would be the very best.
And you would keep assuring Him you’re glad to have Him there –
That serving Him in your 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 TV 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 book 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 keep on doing the things you always do?
Would you keep right on saying the things you always day?
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 look Him in the face?
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 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 sign with great relief when He at last was gone?
It might be interesting to know the things that you would do,
If Jesus came in person to spend some time with you.
