Full Text

1 Now Jesus knocks, O let Him in,
He’s standing at thy door;
Thy heart He’s seeking still to win
As oft He’s done before.

Refrain:
Let Jesus in, Let Jesus in,
Let Jesus in, poor soul;
Let Jesus in, His love alone
Can make the wounded whole.

2 Let Jesus in, there’s none but He,
Can give thee peace with God;
He died that sinners might go free,
He paid their debt with blood. [Refrain]

3 Let Jesus in, He’ll give thee rest,
Thou canst not find elsewhere;
With sin no longer be oppressed,
No longer burdens bear. [Refrain]

4 Let Jesus in, He pleads with thee,
In low sweet tones of love;
Thy dearest Friend, and Guide He’ll be
Unto the home above. [Refrain]
