Representative Text

ARE you seeking joys that will not fade,
Lasting pleasure, by God’s mercy made?
Christ is waiting, fulness of joy he brings;
Swing wide the door of your heart to the King of kings.

Refrain:
Swing wide the door of your heart to the King of kings,
Bid him welcome, for wonderful peace he brings,
He will shelter you under his outstretched wings;
Swing wide the door of your heart to the King of kings.

2 Are you longing perfect peace to win?
Turn to Jesus, bid him enter in;
Peace is found but under his sheltering wings;
Swing wide the door of your heart to the King of kings.

3 Now he calls you with his wondrous voice,
Bid him welcome, make his will your choice;
At his coming heavenly music rings;
Swing wide the door of your heart to the King of kings.
