Representative Text

1 Sinner, hark! the Savior’s calling,
Pleading o’er and o’er;
Hear those tender accents falling:
“Open wide the door.”

Humbly bow with broken spirit,
Heaven’s mercy to implore;
Jesus calls, O sinner, hear it!
Open wide the door.

2 Weary sinner, lost and sighing,
Hear the call once more;
See the Savior bleeding, dying;
Open wide the door. [Refrain]

3 Wake, the joy fore’er increasing,
On that blissful shore;
Give thyself in Jesus’ keeping;
Open wide the door. [Refrain]

4 Hear the gospel message given,
Bar it out no more;
Christ will speak thy sins forgiven;
Open wide the door. [Refrain]
