Mercy's door is always open

Representative Text

1 Hark! the Spirit's voice is saying,
Though in sinful ways you roam,
Mercy's door is always open,
Weary prodigal, come home.

Chorus:
Weary prodigal, come home, come home,
Weary prodigal, come home, come home;
Mercy's door is always open,
Weary prodigal, come home.

2 Tho' where evil's gloom is deepest,
Far away from Christ you rove,
Mercy's door is always open,
Come and prove his boundless love. [Chorus]

3 Tho' upon your soul like crimson,
Glow defiling stains of sin,
Mercy's door is always open;
Enter and be wholly clean. [Chorus]

4 Listen to the Spirit's pleading;
From the Saviour stray no more;
Mercy's door may close forever,
When the days of time are o'er. [Chorus]
