Representative Text

1 Behold me standing at the door,
And hear me pleading evermore
With gentle voice: O heart of sin,
May I come in? May I come in?

Refrain:
Behold me standing at the door,
And hear me pleading evermore:
Say, weary heart, oppressed with sin,
May I come in? May I come in?

2 I bore the cruel thorns for thee,
I waited long and patiently;
Say, weary heart, oppressed with sin,
May I come in? May I come in?

3 I would not plead with thee in vain;
Remember all my grief and pain;
I died to ransom thee from sin,
May I come in? May I come in?

4 I bring thee joy from Heaven above,
I bring thee pardon, peace and love;
Say, weary heart, oppressed with sin,
May I come in? May I come in?
