1 Jesus now is standing at the threshold of your heart,
Open wide the door and let him in;
Joy and peace forever to your soul he will impart,
He will give you rest from sin.

Refrain:
Bid him welcome, welcome,
Haste while he is knocking, lest he turn away,
Bid him welcome, bid him welcome,
Welcome to your heart today.

2 Shall the loving Saviour, who has done so much for you,
In your heart a dwelling be denied?
Oh, if but a part of all his tender love you knew,
You would bid him there abide, [Refrain]

3 Do not keep him waiting till his gentle soul is grieved,
"Why should all his pleading be in vain?
Such a friend us Jesus should be joyfully received.
Welcomed, that he might remain, [Refrain]

4 Jesus came and suffered on the cross to set you free,
Leaving all the glory of his throne;
Oh, then bid him welcome to your heart, and let it be
Now and evermore his own. [Refrain]
