lyrics

Jesus, unborn son of an unwed girl
You'll fit in well in this world
Like the womb, there's no more room in the inn
Oh, what a way to begin

And I just arrived
In the town tonight
And there’s nowhere left to stay

Is there room near the manger for me?
Is there room near the manger for me?
I have been wandering these Bethlehem streets
I'm just a homeless son of David this Christmas Eve

I, like You, am son of the poet king – I came, my taxes to bring
Heard the shepherds, and followed their lively lead
They led me here to your heed

And I'm far from home
And I'm on my own
And I think you understand

Is there room near the manger for me?
Is there room near the manger for me?
I have been wandering these Bethlehem streets
I'm just a homeless son of David this Christmas Eve

Foxes have dens
Birds have their nests
But the King of Heaven and I
We have no place to lay our heads
We’re just a couple of homeless sons of David
Without a bed

Is there room near the manger for me?
Is there room near the manger for me?
I have been wandering these Bethlehem streets
I'm just a homeless son of David this Christmas
I have been wandering these Bethlehem streets
I'm just a homeless son of David this Christmas Eve
