1 Behold the Saviour at your door
Your kindest, truest Friend
Is seeking entrance to your heart,
Your life with His to blend.

The Saviour’s knocking at your door,
And asking entrance in,
He’s knocking, asking o’er and o’er;
Oh, open unto Him!

2 Oh yes, the blessed Son of God,
Tho’ Lord of all above,
Now pauses at your lowly door
And speaks in tones of love:— [Chorus]

3 “If any man will hear my voice
And open unto me,
I’ll sup with him and he with me,
And friends for aye we’ll be.” [Chorus]

4 With hand and feet and wounded side,
He’s knocking at your door,
Oh sinner let Him not depart!
He’ll call on thee no more. [Chorus]
