Representative Text

1 Do you know the blessed Saviour’s at the door?
That He lingers there to bless you more and more?
Will you not invite Him in,
And His fellowship begin?
He is waiting, knocking, calling at the door.

Refrain:
He is waiting, He is knocking at the door,
He is waiting, He is knocking at the door,
He is waiting, He is knocking at the door,
He is waiting, He is knocking at the door.

2 Do no keep Him longer waiting at the door,
Hear Him knocking, calling louder than before.
Bid Him welcome now within,
Turn away from ev’ry sin,
He will enter and the feast be evermore. [Refrain]

3 Will you close your heart against Him at the door?
Will He not be all you need for evermore?
He will take away your pride,
Be your never-failing guide,
To the mansions where the blessed ones adore. [Refrain]

4 O, to think that Jesus waits outside the door,
He may leave you to return, no nevermore.
Leave you hopeless and alone,
With a heart as hard as stone,
Haste to hear Him now and open wide the door. [Refrain]
