For Msgr Lisante & us too


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 him, would be the
Very best
And you would keep assuring Him, you're glad
to have Him there
That serving Him in your own home, is joy beyond
But- when you saw him coming, would you
meet him at the door
With arms outstretched in welcome to
your Heav'nly visitor?
Or would you have to change you 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
Would you hide your worldly music and put
some hymn books 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 go right on doing the things you
always do?
Would you keep 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 its
usual pace,
And would you find it hard each meal
to say a table grace?
Would you sing the songs you always sing
and read the book 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,
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 sigh with great relief when
He at last was gone?
It might be interesting to know the
things that you would do
If Jesus Christ in person came to spend
Some time with you
