Sinner, didst thou hear it

Full Text

1. Sinner, didst thou hear it?
"Tis the Saviour's call,
Standing, knocking, waiting,
Christ the Lord of all;
Seeking for an entrance
In that heart of thine,
Pleading to transform thee
By His grace divine.

Chorus:
Standing, knocking, waiting,
Hear His gentle voice;
'Tis the Saviour calling,
Make today your choice.

2. Tender is His accent,
Winning is His tone,
Standing, knocking, waiting,
Wants thee for a son.
Father's house of mansions,
Beautiful and fair,
Stands in grandeur waiting,
He would sup you there. [Chorus]

3. Oh, canst thou refuse Him,
Knocking day by day,
Standing, knocking, waiting,
Yield without delay;
Yes, the Lord Almighty,
Humbled in the dust,
Beggeth thee as sov'reign,
"Take me as Thy guest." [Chorus]

4. Soon the day is coming,
When no more, as now,
Standing, knocking, waiting,
Christ to thee will bow;
On His throne of glory,
Thou the beggar then,
Judgment passing o'er thee,
Thou wilt beg in vain. [Chorus]

5. Oh, I yield, I open,
Saviour, at the door
Standing, knocking, waiting,
Thou shalt wait no more;
Enter with forgiveness,
Enter, Peerless One;
Treat me as a servant,
Never as a son. [Chorus]
