Looking for both lyrics and piano music! Can anyone help! Thanks

I don't have the piano music but have the lyrics:

No room for the baby at Bethlehem's Inn,
Only cattle shed,
No home on this earth for the dear Son of God,
Nowhere to lay his head.
Only a cross did they give to our Lord,
Only a borrowed tomb,
Today He is seeking a place in your heart,
Will you say to Him "No room"?

O Lord, in my heart there's a welcome for Thee,
Gladly I now would say,
Come in, blessed Saviour, my heart and my life
Henceforth would own Thy sway.
Long has Thou waited and long knocked in vain
Outside my heart's closed door;
O cleanse me from sin, then. dear Lord, enter in
And dwell there forever more.

(PS. I took the lyrics off a carol sheet published by the Bible Lands Society a number of years ago -  33rd edition if that helps!)

I have been looking for this carol for the past 50 years. Am so happy to know that it actually exists. Lovely tune.

My two sisters and I sang this at church a couple of years when we were little. Thanks for the lyrics. Bring back memories.

Can anyone give me a clue as to any music books this was published in? I've searched though a huge pile from the 1950's to present day and can't find the piano music anywhere!

Remember singing this in Sunday school in the 1940s!
