1 I can hear the knocking Saviour:
Shall I say Him nay,
Make Him from my cold heart’s portals
Sadly turn away?
I can hear Him, shall I heed Him,
Let Him in today?
List! He’s knocking, waiting, pleading,
Can I say Him nay?
2 With what love the knocking Saviour
Seeks His way to win;
Joy He brings, and pardon whispers,
If I bid Him in. [Refrain]
3 I can see the knocking Saviour
just outside my door,
Such a tender, sweet expression,
Other face ne’er bore. [Refrain]
4 I can hear the knocking Saviour,
Sad will be my fate,
Should He pass, perchance tomorrow
Will be late, too late! [Refrain]
