Room For You

Angel Meadow Manchester

Truly hell on earth

Industrial revolution

Slave for all your worth

Crowded rooms on crowded streets

Illness in the air

Spend your life in factories

No one else to care


Crowded cars on motorways

Crowded city streets

Crowded teeming shanty towns

Crowded slums repeat

Crowded soldiers go to war

Crowded on to trains

Crowded graveyards hold them now

Death in mud and rain


Many rooms my Father has

Jesus tells his friends

Alas there is no room for him

Soon will come his end

But God has room for everyone

So we should make a space

A place for everyone to live

To live in peace and grace
