194. Just Outside the Door.

1 Oh, weary soul, the gate is near,
In sin why still abide?
Both peace and rest are waiting here
And you are just outside.

Chorus:
Just outside the door, just outside the door,
Behold, it stands ajar!
Just outside the door, just outside the door,
So near and yet so far!

2 Forgiveness Jesus will impart—
To save your soul He died;
How can you still offend His heart,
By staying just outside? [Chorus]

3 The day of life is passing by,
Soon night your soul will hide;
And then "too late" will be your cry,
If you are just outside! [Chorus]

4 Come in, be free from stains of sin;
Be glad, be satisfied;
Before the tempest breaks, come in,
And leave your past outside. [Chorus]
