Representative Text

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

Chorus:
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]
