1. The Shepherd stands at the open door—
He stands and waits for thee;
He’s calling now—has called before—
Oh, listen to His plea.
He’s calling, calling, calling you,
Turn now, today, make Him your choice;
He’s calling, calling calling you,
Oh, listen to the Shepherd’s voice.
2. He’s waiting at the outer gate—
The gate of the open fold;
Why linger then or hesitate?
His love cannot be told. [Refrain]
3. Yield Him your hand, and heart and love,
Obey the Shepherd’s call;
Be numbered in that fold above,
Give Him your life, your all. [Refrain]
