HELP !!Can anyone tell where I can get free lyrics and music for "No Room" by John W. Peterson? written in 1958. It was recorded on "Come On Ring those Bells" by Evie Tornquist back in the seventies '76 I believe ( now out of print/ not available). By the way, I think this song was part of a cantata.. There must be SOMEBODY out there who knows !!!!Thanx & God bless         Sojerner

Yes, it was a song in a cantata by John W. Peterson.  Beautiful song.  I will try and come up with words as our church sang this contata in 1969 or 1970.

The cantata was "Night of Miracles"

I look for this every year.
I sang it in high school choir in Springfield, VA in 1964.
It was a single choral selection.
I would like a CD.
Thanks from me, too, to who finds it!

No room, only a manager of han
No room, He is a stranger today
No room, here in His world turned way
No room, no room

No room, here in the hearts of mankind
No room, no cheery welcome could find
No room, surely the world is blind
No room, no room

No room, only a manger of hay
No room, He is a stranger today
No room, here in His world turned away
No room, No room

No room
Angels, in heaven up yonder
Watch with amazement and wonder
To see the Son of the Highest treated so
No room, no room, no room

John W. Peterson

I have a copy of the music, but it's blurry. I'll try to make a pdf and include it.

I have a copy of music. It's blurry, but works. I don't know how to paste it into this e-mail. If you want a copy of a pdf or jpeg, email me at jdckivett@aol.com and make your subject line say NO ROOM. If someone can tell me how to paste or attach to this mail, let me know.

Thank you. I have emailed for a copy.
I don't know how you can post it here.

I found the music in a book called "Christmas Favorites" by Singspiration, published in the 1980's.

Hi! I'm new to this site tonight & I just happened to direct "Night of Miracles" in 1961 in our church in Burbank, CA. I still have the reel-to-reel tape of the 2nd performance as my father, brother and wife were all back-up soloists that performed on the week following Christmas. I also just got the software to record the old tapes onto CD's. I'll post a note on this site when I get this done and make it available to interested parties (no charge) via email. I just stared looking for Easter Music for next year. Who knew I'd wind up on a site like this! I know I'll have plenty of occasions to use this. Cool!    ....Don R.

I am so excited to find this website!  I have been looking for a recording of the Christmas Cantata," Night of Miracles" to purchase for my father for a Christmas present.  He was the narrator when my church performed this in the mid 60s and it has always been his favorite (he will be 81 years old next month!)  I would love to be able to purchase a copy from you if you have it available.  Please send instructions on how to do that.

Hey Folks,
Does anyone has the lyrics for "Come Holly Spirit" By John W. Petreson?

The Holy Spirit came at Pentecost
He came in mighty fullness then
His witness through believers won the lost
and multitudes were born again.   

The early Christians scattered o'oer the world
they preached the gospel fearlessly
though some were martyred and to lions hurled,
they marched along in victory.

Then in an age when darkness gripped the earth
the just shall live by faith was learned
the Holy Spirit gave the Church new birth
As reformation fires burned.

In later years the great revivals came
when saints would seek the Lord and pray
O once again we need that Holy Flame
to meet the challenge of today.
Come Holy Spirit
Dark is the hour
we need your filling
your love and your mighty power
move now among us
stir us we pray
come Holy Spirit
Revive the church today!
Revive the church today.
Revive the church today.

I got these lyrics from .. no kididng, my MOTHER! So. I've loved this song since we first sang it in 1974 in Winston Salem at Church.
Does ANYONE have the mp3 - I'd dearly loooooove to have it!

Does anyone have the cantata, I believe by John W Peterson, that moves through the life of Christ.  I sang it in choir in the early 70's.  Some of the songs were, "In Ramah there was a voice heard", "Let him be crucified." "There was no room for him, no room." "And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them, and they were sore afraid." "Fear not, behold I bring you great tidings of great joy."

I have had several requests for the sheet music to "No Room" by John W. Peterson.  I now have the music available in a PDF format if anyone wants it (keys of "F" and "Eb).  I also have the sheet music to "Ring the Bells" by Harry Bollback.
