Representative Text

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?

Chorus:
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]
