During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

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]
