1 Brother, at the threshold standing,
See you not the open door,
See you not the hand extended,
Reaching out to help you o’er?

Take the step, my brother, take it,
Take the step and yield to God;
Rise and Christ confess as Savior,
Take the step and trust his word, and trust his word.

2 See the banquet hall of mercy,
See thy seat that vacant stands,
Think of loved ones waiting for thee,
See them now with beckoning hands. [Chorus]

3 Keep thy Lord no longer waiting,
He hath died, thy soul to win,
Let His love, thy heart constraining,
Lead thee now to enter in. [Chorus]

4 Just a step, will you not take it,
While in pray'r to God we bow,
Will you not your sins forsaking,
Trust in Christ, and trust him now? [Chorus]
