9823. The Waiting Savior

1 I am waiting at the portal;
Do not pass Me by!
Tho’ the cares of life are pressing,
Linger to receive a blessing,
Ere the night draws nigh.

At the portal, I am waiting,
I am waiting still for thee;
At the portal I am waiting,
Then come, O come to Me.

2 I am waiting at the portal;
Do I wait in vain?
Seeking only earthly pleasures
And rejecting heav’nly treasures
Do not bring thee gain. [Refrain]

3 I am waiting at the portal,
Patiently I wait;
In My Father’s name receiving
All who come to Me believing,
Ere it be too late. [Refrain]
