1 In the silent hours of darkness,
When the world is hushed and still,
Comes the Savior, gently knocking,
Till His locks the dewdrops fill.

Oh, for grace to listen to Him,
Oh, for room within my heart;
Oh, for love to bid Him enter,
Enter never to depart.

2 Listen, O my soul, with wonder,
That the Savior comes to thee,
Ever knocking, ever waiting,
Waiting what thy will shall be. [Refrain]

3 Come and enter, precious Savior,
Come, dear Father, with the Son,
Come, Thou ever loving Spirit,
Come, Thou Holy Three in One. [Refrain]
