228. The Messages of the Doves

1 The messengers tap on the windows,
The windows of the soul;
They carry this news from our Savior,
“I died that ye might be made whole.”

2 The messengers tap on the windows,
And beat their wings on the bars;
They carry this news to the sinner,
“You can be as bright as the stars.”

3 The messengers tap on the windows,
Three times they come and they go;
Jesus saith, “Though your sins be as scarlet,
Trust Me, I will make them like snow.”

4 The messengers tap on the windows;
“Behold, I freely forgive;
Whosoever will come, let him do so,
Partake of salvation and live.”

5 The messengers tap on the windows;
Sweet peace from our Savior they bring;
Sweet peace which is past understanding—
The window’s now open; come in.
