1 The Savior, standing at thy door,
Is knocking, knocking, o’er and o’er,
He seeks thy guest to be,
But should the door still closed remain,
The Lord may never call again,
Then what becomes of thee?

Refrain:
He’s standing at the door,
Is knocking o’er and o’er;
He seeks thy guest to be;
Should the door still closed remain.
He may never call again;
Then what becomes of thee?

2 Arise! take down the bars of sin,
And let the loving Savior in,
Make him thy welcome guest.
He’ll give thee of his richest grace,
He’ll make thy home his dwelling place,
And with thee ever rest. [Refrain]

3 Oh! when he enters to thy heart
His light and love shall ne’er depart,
But on thee ever shine.
And this thy joyous song shall be,
“My Savior comes to dwell with me,
And he is ever mine!” [Refrain]

4 But is he yet before thy door,
Or does he wait and call no more,
Where all is closed and fast?
The lamp of life may cease to burn,
And Jesus nevermore return,
This call may be the last! [Refrain]
