1 The Master is come, and calleth for thee,
He stands at the door of thy heart,
No friend so forgiving, so gentle as he,
Oh, say, wilt thou let him depart?

Refrain:
Patiently waiting, earnestly pleading,
Jesus, thy Saviour, knocks at thy heart,
Patiently waiting, earnestly pleading,
Jesus, thy Saviour, knocks at thy heart.

2 The Master has come, with blessings for thee,
Arise, and his message receive;
Thy ransom is purchased, thy pardon is free,
If thou wilt repent and believe. [Refrain]

3 The Master has come, and calleth thee now,
This moment what joy may be thine;
How tender that smile that illumines his brow,—
A pledge of his favor divine. [Refrain]

4 He waits for thee still, then haste with delight,
Oh, fly to the arms of His love,
Press on to that beautiful mansion of light,
Prepared in his kingdom above. [Refrain]
