Making Jesus Welcome
If Jesus came to your town,
would anybody care;
would the people gather in the park
and listen to him there?
If Jesus came to your street
would you come outside and see?
Would you talk with his disciples
and invite them ‘round for tea.
If Jesus came to your house
would you get out the good plates;
would you let him know he’s special
and that you want to be his mate?
Would you recognise his homelessness
and offer him a bed,
(along with all his homeless mates),
and hear the things he said?
If Jesus came to dinner
would you grab a mop and broom,
for to make a good impression;
and to tidy up the room?
Would you smile and make him welcome
knowing he’ll be gone next day;
or would you take his message deep inside
and invite him there to stay?
