1 Thru the doors that open stand,
Who will go? Who will go?
Calls invite on every hand,
Who will go? Who will go?
You whom Christ from sin has freed,
Hear the Lord of glory plead:
To the lands that lie in need,
Who will go? Who will go?

2 To the souls that know Him not,
Who will go? Who will go?
Who will go to cheer their lot?
Who will go? Who will go?
Dear in Heaven’s sight are they
Who will Jesus’ call obey—
To the lost ones far away,
Who will go? Who will go?

3 Soul, does Jesus speak to you?
Who will go? Who will go?
Has He work for you to do?
Who will go? Who will go?
He has borne the Cross before,
He will keep the crown in store;
Enter then the Open Door,
Who will go? Who will go?
