1 My Saviour stands waiting and knocks at the door;
Has knocked and is knocking again;
I hear his kind voice, I’ll reject him no more,
Nor let him stand pleading in vain;
In infinite mercy he came from above,
To ransom, to cleanse me from sin;
I’ll yield to the voice of his merciful love,
And let my dear Saviour come in.
Saviour, come in, cleanse me from sin;
Jesus, my Saviour, come in, come in!
Enter the door, waiting no more,
Saviour, dear Saviour, come in!
2 O Saviour, my Ransom, Redeemer and Friend,
The Life, and the Truth, and the Way,
On thy precious merit alone I depend;
Dwell in me, and keep me, I pray.
Thy goodness hath opened the door of my heart;--
'Tis open in welcome to thee;
Come in, blessed Saviour, and never depart;
Come in, with thy mercy, to me. [Chorus]
