1 He is knocking at your heart,
Let Him in, Let Him in;
He is knocking at your heart,
Let your Saviour in.

Refrain:
Knocking, He is knocking,
Oh, let your Saviour in.
Waiting, Waiting,
Yes, Christ would cleanse your sin.

2 He has often knocked before,
Let Him in, Let Him in;
He has often knocked before,
Let your Saviour in. [Refrain]

3 He may never knock again,
Let Him in, Let Him in;
He may never knock again,
Let your Saviour in. [Refrain]

4 Now He'd save you from your sin,
Let Him in, Let Him in;
Now He'd save you from your sin,
Let your Saviour in. [Refrain]
