Representative Text

1 Behold, I stand at the door and knock, knock, knock, knock,
If any one will hear my voice
And open wide to me the door,
I will come in and sup with him,
And he with Me for evermore.
And he with Me for evermore.

2 Behold, I stand at the door and knock, knock, knock, knock,
And shall I stand and knock in vain
At the heart's door O child of sin?
I've waited long and patiently,
Undo the door and let me in.
Undo the door and let me in.

3 Behold, I stand at the door and knock, knock, knock, knock,
O weary heart O trembling soul
Undo the door long closed with sin,
I bring you joy from heav'n above,
And gladly I would enter in,
And gladly I would enter in.
