Things seemed strange this morning
As I packed my bags for school
The smiles I'm used to seein' just weren't there
I heard my father talking
To my mother down the hallway
Above the whispers all that I could hear... was

CHORUS:
Set a place at the table
For someone who might need it
Set a place at the table for someone to sit down and eat
Kick their shoes off
Put their feet up
Forget about their troubles for awhile
When there's a place at your table
There's little hope for you and I

I was feeling kinda helpless
About the words that I just heard
Could it be the family 2 doors down
They said a couple months of bad luck
Had them up against the wall
And though it may seem small
I know there's something I can do...

CHORUS:
Set a place at the table
For someone who might need it
Set a place at the table for someone to sit down and eat
Kick their shoes off
Put their feet up
Forget about their troubles for awhile
When there's a place at your table
There's little hope for you and I

Make room at your table
For your friends and family
Take the time to share your day
Just laugh talk and eat

CHORUS:
Set a place at the table
For someone who might need it
Set a place at the table for someone to sit down and eat
Kick their shoes off
Put their feet up
Forget about their troubles for awhile
When there's a place at your table
There's little hope for you and I

... there's a little hope for you and i

    There is truly hope in the inn . Little(baby jesus) hope becomes much in the masters hand. We all should show lovingkindness just as justin does with his music. The good spirit to give making use of his gift to the world. We all have to do no less, giving to one another in some good way. Jesus is the gift that keeps on giving. I read so many love justin to death. They really love him in the expression of his gift to them. Show the gift of christ through you all season long.
