At the Threshold Standing

Representative Text

1 Jesus calls, your heart would win,
Brother, at the threshold standing;
Heed His voice, come in, come in,
Brother, at the threshold standing.

Chorus:
Enter now, His voice obey,
Quickly enter while your ma,
Brother, at the threshold standing;
Jesus calls, as oft before,
Oh, enter at the open door.

2 Waiting there you long have stood,
Brother, at the threshold standing;
Waiting ne'er can make you good,
Brother, at the threshold standing. [Chorus]

3 Souls will perish just outsied,
Brother, at the threshold standing;
Haste! the door stands open wide,
Brother, at the threshold standing. [Chorus]

4 Enter now, why longer wait?
Brother, at the threshold standing;
Soon, ah, soon, 't will be too late!
Brother, at the threshold standing. [Chorus]
