If Jesus came to your house

If Jesus came to your house
To spend some time with you,
If He came unexpected,
I wonder what you'd do.

But when you saw Him coming,
Would you meet him at the door,
With arms outstretched in welcome
To you heavenly visitor?

Or would you have to change your clothes
Before you let Him in
Or hide some magazines
And the Bible where they'd been?

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?

It might be interesting to know,
The things that you would do,
If Jesus came in person, to spend
Some time with you.
