Representative Text

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.

Refrain:
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]
