Dear Savior, come in

Representative Text

1 So long Thou hast patiently knocked at the door,
Come in, dear Saviour, come in!
Tho’ I have rejected, deceived Thee before,
Come in, dear Saviour, come in.

Refrain:
Come in, come in,
My Saviour, my Lord, come in;
I’ll grieve Thee no more,
Lord, I’ve opened the door,
Come in, dear Saviour, come in.

2 The depths of Thy love I can never divine,
Come in, dear Saviour, come in!
Wilt enter a heart so unworthy as mine?
Come in, dear Saviour, come in. [Refrain]

3 I’ve nothing to give in return for Thy grace,
Come in, dear Saviour, come in!
Yet how I am longing to look on Thy face,
Come in, dear Saviour, come in. [Refrain]

4 Oh, shame, that so long I neglected Thy call,
Come in, dear Saviour, come in!
My blessed Redeemer, my life, and my all,
Come in, dear Saviour, come in. [Refrain]
