11836. 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 divine,
And paid the price in blood divine.

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.
