11960. Open Wide The Door

1 Jesus knocks, He calls to thee;
"Weary one, O come to Me";
He can save and only He;
Open wide the door.

Open wide the door,
Open wide the door,
He can save, and only He—
Open wide the door.

2 Jesus knocks, He comes to save;
’Twas for thee His life He gave;
He hath triumphed o’er the grave;
Open wide the door. [Refrain]

3 Jesus knocks, is knocking still;
Yield to Him at once thy will;
He with joy thy heart can fill;
Open wide the door. [Refrain]

5 Jesus knocks, the moments fly;
While salvation yet is nigh,
Ere the Savior passeth by,
Open wide the door. [Refrain]
