IF JESUS CAME TO YOUR HOUSE

by:
Lois Blanchard Eades

If Jesus came to your house,
I wonder what you;d do.
Yes, f Jesus came to your house,
To spend a day or two,>BR? If He came unexpected,
Just dropped in on you.

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 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 youmeet 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 radio
And hope He hadn't heard?
And wish you hadn't uttered
That last loud hasty word?

And would you hide your worldly music
And put some hymn books out?
Could you let Jesus just 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?

And would your family conversation
Keep up it's 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 books you read,
And let Him know the things
On which your mind and spirit feed?

And would you take Jesus with you
Everywhere you'd planned to go?
Or maybe would you change your plans
For just a day or so?

Would you be glad to have Him meet
Your very closest friends,
Or hope that they would stay away
Until His visit ends?

And 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?

Oh, it might be interesting to know,
The things that you would do,
If Jesus came in person
To spend some time with you.
