1 Jesus knocks; He calls to thee;
"Weary one, O come to me;"
He can save, and only He;
Open wide the door.

Open wide the door,
Open wide the door,
He can save, and only He;--
Open wide the door.

2 Jesus knocks, He comes to save,
'Twas for thee His life He gave;
He hath triumph'd o'er the grave;
Open wide the door. [Chorus]

3 Jesus knocks, is knocking still;
Yield to Him at once thy will;
He with joy thy heart can fill;
Open wide the wide. [Chorus]

4 Jesus knocks; the moments fly;
While salvation yet is nigh;
Ere the Saviour passeth by,
Open wide the door. [Chorus]
