If Jesus came to your house to spend a day or two
If he came unexpectedly I wonder what you'd do
When you saw him comin' would you meet him at the door
With arms outstretched and welcome to your heavenly visitor.

Or would you need to change some things before you let him in
Like burn some magazines and put the Bible where they'd been
Oh, I know you'd give your nicest room to such an honered guest.

And all the food that you'd serve to him would be the very best
And you'd keep assuring him that you was glad to have him there
That serving him in your home was a join beyond compare
But what about your family conversation would it keep up it's normal pace
And would you find it hard each meal to say a table grace.

Would you be glad to have him stay forever on and on
Or would you sigh of great relief when finally he had gone
You know it might be interesting to know the things you'd do
If Jesus came in person to spend some time with you.

(Sang)
What would you do, what would you do
If Jesus came to spend some time with you...
