Jésus Frappe À Votre Porte

Representative Text

1 Jésus frappe à votre porte:
Ouvrez aujourd’hui! Ouvrez aujourd’hui!
C’est le ciel qu’Il vous apporte!
Ouvrez aujourd’hui! Ouvrez aujourd’hui!
Chez vous Il veut prendre place;
Ouvrez avant qu’Il se lasse!
Le temps presse, le temps passe;
Ouvrez aujourd’hui! Ouvrez aujourd’hui!

2 Ouvrez! c’est Lui qui pardonne:
Ouvrez aujourd’hui! Ouvrez aujourd’hui!
Acceptez ce qu’Il vous donne:
Ouvrez aujourd’hui! Ouvrez aujourd’hui!
Ses promesses sont certaines;
Sa main va briser vos chaînes;
Bientôt finiront vos peines:
Ouvrez aujourd’hui! Ouvrez aujourd’hui!

3 Seul Il ôte les souillures:
Ouvrez aujourd’hui! Ouvrez aujourd’hui!
Seul Il bande les blessures:
Ouvrez aujourd’hui! Ouvrez aujourd’hui!
Si Satan vient vous surprendre,
Seul Il pourra vous défendre
Et sous son aile vous prendre:
Ouvrez aujourd’hui! Ouvrez aujourd’hui!

4 Écoutez l’appel si tendre!
Ouvrez aujourd’hui! Ouvrez aujourd’hui!
C’est assez le faire attendre:
Ouvrez aujourd’hui! Ouvrez aujourd’hui!
Car le Sauveur vous implore:
Comment résister encore?
Oh! que votre âme l’adore!
Ouvrez aujourd’hui! Ouvrez aujourd’hui!
