Representative Text

1 I open my heart to Jesus,
The door that was closed swings wide;
In patient love long He waited;
Come, Lord, in my heart abide.

Come into my heart,
Come into my heart,
Come into my heart, Lord Jesus;
Possess me, I pray,
O use me alway;
Come into my heart, Lord Jesus.

2 My heart has been dark and lonely,
But Jesus now fills with peace;
He speaks, and the shadows vanish,
He enters, my strivings cease. [Refrain]

3 My joy is His radiant presence,
The sunshine is not so bright;
All selfishness lost in glory,
Makes service with Him delight. [Refrain]
