Representative Text

Someone is knocking at your heart’s door,
Will you let Him in, will you let Him in?

1 ‘Tis Jesus knocks at your heart’s door
Long bolted by the pow’r of sin;
He knocks today, as oft before,
O will you let the Savior in?

O will you let the Savior in?
He’ll cleanse you from the deepest sin;
He knock today as oft before,
O will you let the Savior in?
O will you let the Savior in?

2 He’s waited long, is waiting still,
Has knocked there o’er and o’er again,
You treat no friend like Him so ill,
O will you let Him knock in vain? [Refrain]

3 Perhaps it soon may be too late,
Your soul to save from guilt and sin;
Haste ere shall close the pearly gate,
And let the blessed Savior in. [Refrain]
