1. The Savior is calling you, list to His voice,
He knocks at your heart’s door today;
O will you not hasten to make Him your choice,
For how do you dare to delay?

He’s knocking, He’s knocking,
Patiently now, with anxious brow
He’s knocking, He’s knocking,
Open and let Him come in.

2. He pleadeth so patiently, Open to Me,
And yet you will bid Him depart;
How worn with His footsteps the pathway must be,
Before the closed door of your heart. [Refrain]

3. The time is fast passing, the end draweth nigh,
Then haste thee and open the door;
The Angel of Death, as he swift passeth by,
Will close it, to open no more. [Refrain]
