113. I Am the Door

1 "I am the door," come in, come in,
And leave without thy load of sin;
The night is dark, the storm is wild,
O venture in, thou stranger child,
O venture in, thou stranger child.

2 "I am the door," come gently knock
And I will loose the heavy lock,
That guards my Father's precious fold:
Come in from darkness and from cold,
Come in from darkness and from cold.

3 "I am the door," no longer roam;
Here are thy treasures, here thy home;
I purchased them for thee and thine,
And paid the price in blood of mine,
And paid the price in blood of mine.

4 "I am the door," my Father waits
To make thee heir of rich estates;
Come dwell with him, and dwell with me,
And thou my Father's child shall be,
And thou my Father's child shall be.

5 "I am the door," come in, come in,
And everlasting treasures win;
My Father's house was built for thee,
And thou shalt share his home with me,
And thou shalt share his home with me.
