1 O sinner, see thy Saviour
At Mercy’s open gate!
O listen to his pleading!
Soon, soon ‘twill be too late!

Refrain:
The gate ajar! O sinner step in!
The gate is ajar for thee!
O wand’rer, afar, it still is ajar!
The gate is ajar for thee!

2 His hands are pierced with nail-marks,
His holy brown with thorns!
Thy sins have caused his anguish,
Thy waywardness he mourns! [Refrain]

3 For thee thy Lord was wounded,
Thy chastisement he bore;
For thee—despised, rejected,—
Holds open heaven’s door! [Refrain]

4 Thy sins he yearns to pardon,
He’ll wash them all away;
The gate ajar he’s holding!
O enter while you may! [Refrain]
