Full Text

1 He waits for thee with wondrous grace,
Divine compassion in His face;
With wounded brow and nail-scarred hands,
The Saviour on the threshold stands.

Refrain:
He waits for thee!
He waits for thee!
Was ever love so full and free?
No longer close thy heart in sin,
But let the loving Saviour in.

2 He waits for thee in patient love,
To bring thee blessings from above,
And o’er thy hardened heart doth yearn;
O canst thou still thy Saviour spurn? [Refrain]

3 He waits for thee, yet time grows late,
Note ever thus will Jesus wait;
Receive Him, ere He pleads no more,
And Christ, rejected, leaves the door. [Refrain]
