Representative Text

1 Lo! Jesus patiently knocks at the door,
Knocks at thy heart, knocks at thy heart;
Open today and resist Him no more,
Lest He forever depart.

Refrain:
Knocking today, knocking today;
Jesus is knocking,
Is knocking for entrance today.

2 Open the door and say, Master, come in,
Come and abide, come and abide;
He will redeem thee and cleanse from all sin,
He will be with thee to guide. [Refrain]

3 Jesus stands waiting and pleads with thee still;
Open today, open today;
How canst thou treat the dear Savior so ill?
How canst thou turn Him away? [Refrain]

4 Open the door of thy heart and find rest,
Find it today, find it today;
Let Him but enter and thou shalt be blest;
Why wilt thou longer delay? [Refrain]
