Representative Text

1 The Savior stands outside the door
In loving mercy waiting there;
And longs to pass the threshold o’er,
To free thy life from earthborn care.

He knocks! He knocks! unbar the door,
Lest He depart forevermore;
He knocks! He knocks! O let Him in,
He’ll cleanse thy heart from every sin.

2 He knocks with hands all rent and torn
With cruel spikes nailed to the tree,
And in His body there hath borne
The penalty of sin for thee. [Refrain]

3 Accept Him now, thy Savior, friend,
While there is time thy lamp to trim,
Lest woe shall be thine awful end
For having thus rejected Him. [Refrain]
