Representative Text

1 Christ is standing at the door,
Knocking, knocking evermore;
Will you not admit Him in,
And be redeemed from sin?

Refrain:
Open, soul, and let Him in,
You shall be redeemed from sin;
Once within the Lord will leave you never,
He will be your friend forever.

2 Christ is standing at the door,
Waiting, waiting evermore;
Precious soul, no more delay,
Be saved, be saved today. [Refrain]

3 Christ is standing at the door,
Pleading, pleading evermore;
Shall He plead, and plead in vain,
While you unsaved remain? [Refrain]

4 Christ is standing at the door,
Loving, loving evermore;
Shall His love not move your soul,
To come and be made whole? [Refrain]
