Michael McLean - The Innkeeper (Let Him In) lyrics

I am a man forgotten
No one recalls my name
Thousands of years will fail to
Fully erase my shame
But I turned a profit
Nicely the day
That I turned the couple away
I turned them away...

I didn't sleep that evening
Though I'd sold out my place
Somehow I felt uneasy
Something about her face
Why did I wish
That I'd let them stay?
I didn't think they could pay
Or could they have paid?

Restless, I left my bedroom
I walked the streets all night
Lost in the world I lived in
Found by a heavenly light
Staring at one bright star in the sky
I heard a baby cry
And I knew where that cry
Had come from
'Cuz I'd told them where
they could go
But I didn't think I could face them
And so I walked slowly home
Missing my chance
To share in their joy
I never saw the boy

He never would condemn me
I did that all on my own
He offered His forgiveness
And ever since then, I've known
He lets us choose
Each hour of each day
If we'll let Him in to stay

Let Him in
Let Him in
Let the peace on earth begin
Let Him in
Let Him in
Let the hope and joy begin

And whether it be
In your world today
Or a crowded Bethlehem Inn,
Find a way
(Find a way)
Make Him room
(Make Him room)
Let Him in
Let Him in
(Let Him in)
Let the hope and joy begin
(It's beginning)
Let Him in
(Let Him in)
Let Him in
(Let Him in)
Let the peace on earth begin
(It's beginning)
Let Him in
(Let Him in)
Let Him in
(Let Him in)
Let Him in
Let Him in
(Let Him in)
