Representative Text

1 The door of hope stands open wide,
Its keeper is the Crucified,
His wounded hands and feet and side
Invite the wand’rer home.

Refrain:
Do not delay,
Turn not away,
The Spirit leads and Jesus pleads,
O come, come today.
Do not delay,
Turn not away,
The Spirit leads and Jesus pleads,
O come, come today.

2 O will you now the call obey,
And enter in without delay,
No longer from the Saviour stray,
O weary wand’rer, come. [Refrain]

3 Then do not linger at the gate,
Nor longer tempt the sinner’s fate,
Tomorrow it may be too late,
O weary wand’rer, come. [Refrain]
