Representative Text

1 Don’t keep Jesus waiting,
Waiting evermore,
Hark! He knocketh softly
At thy bosom’s door;
Haste that door to open,
Open, I implore.

2 Don’t keep Jesus waiting,
Waiting at the door,
How He suffered for thee,
All thy sins He bore;
Bid Him freely enter,
Bid Him, I implore.

3 Don’t keep Jesus waiting,
Friend He is and more,
As thy Savior loves thee,
None e’er loved before;
Do not turn Him from thee,
Do not, I implore.

4 Don’t keep Jesus waiting,
Till the day is o’er,
Sad, should Jesus leave thee,
Leave thee evermore;
Wide the door fling open,
Open, I implore.
