Representative Text

1 Behold the Saviour standing at the door!
With pierced hands He knocketh o’er and o’er!
All your life He waits to fill;
His to work, to do, to will;
O let Him in, O let Him in!

O let Him in, O let Him in!
Life of God is He,
Let Him in, O let Him in!
Life He brings to you.

2 O let Him in! your sins He will remove,
He will prepare for you a feast of love;
All the darkness will depart
When you let Him in your heart;
O let Him in, O let Him in! [Refrain]

3 O let Him in! from all your struggles cease;
O let Him in, He brings thee joy and peace;
Hope of glory will He be,
As He lives His life in thee;
O let Him in, O let Him in! [Refrain]
