Representative Text

1 Down at the feet of my Lord, one day,
Broken and bruised and sore,
A captive to sin and in deep dismay,
I cried at His open door.

Chorus:
O would you know of this Open Door,
O would you enter, too?
Look then to Jesus and sin no more;
The ransom was paid for you.

2 Too weary to enter, too worn to pray,
I could but lift my eyes
And look in His face as I heard Him say,
“Rejoice! I have paid the price.” [Chorus]

3 “Look at my side, see my hands and feet,
My blood from these wounds has flowed;”
‘Twas love paid the price, paid the price complete,
‘Tis love brings you back to God. [Chorus]
