Representative Text

1 ‘Tis the Savior who would claim
Entrance to your heart:
Will you send your Lord away?—
Will you say?—“Depart!”
He will all your trials share,
He will cleanse you from all sin.

Refrain:
‘Tis your Savior, ‘tis your Savior standing there”
Haste, and let Him in! Let Him in!
Lest He turn away, let Him in!

2 No one like the Savior knocks
At the sinner’s door;
‘Tis no stranger that implores,—
He has knocked before;
He has often sought your heart:
Shall He cleanse it now from sin? [Refrain]

3 Oh, how can you bid Him wait
Till another day,
When already Jesus weeps
At the long delay?
‘Twas for you that Jesus died,
And ‘tis you He longs to win. [Refrain]
