Representative Text

1 At your heart’s door Christ is knocking,
Let the Savior in;
Let the Savior in;
Yield at once, the door unlocking,
Let the Savior in;
Let the Savior in.

Refrain:
He is standing at the door,
He has been there oft before,
Has been knocking o’er and o’er,
Let him in.

2 Knocking, knocking, don’t you hear him,
Let the Savior;
Let the Savior in;
Jesus loved you, do not fear him,
Let the Savior in;
Let the Savior in. [Refrain]

3 ‘Tis the Lord of glory speaking,
Let the Savior in;
Let the Savior in;
Poor lost sinners he is seeking,
Let the Savior in;
Let the Savior in. [Refrain]

4 With His precious blood he bought you,
Let the Savior in;
Let the Savior in;
Long and patiently has sought you,
Let the Savior in;
Let the Savior in. [Refrain]

5 Open gladly to receive him,
Let the Savior in;
Let the Savior in;
He may leave you if you grieve him,
Let the Savior in;
Let the Savior in. [Refrain]
