Representative Text

1 Jesus is softly knocking,
Let him come in, let him come in;
List to his tender pleading,
Let the dear Saviour in.
Just now throw open the door,
Let him come in, let him come in;
Just now he waits to forgive,
Let the dear Saviour in.

2 Are you too heavy laden?
Let him come in, let him come in;
Jesus will bear your burden,
Let the dear Saviour in.
Just now throw open the door,
Let him come in, let him come in;
Just now he waits to forgive,
Let the dear Saviour in.

3 Are you so weary weeping?
Let him come in, let him come in;
Jesus will bear your sorrow,
Let the dear Saviour in.
Just now throw open the door,
Let him come in, let him come in;
Just now he waits to forgive,
Let the dear Saviour in.

4 Open to him the portal,
Let him come in, let him come in;
You will receive his blessing,
Let the dear Saviour in.
Just now I open the door,
Saviour, come in, Saviour, come in;
Just now I know he forgives,
Jesus has entered in.
