Representative Text

1 We are coming, we are coming
From the darksome ways of sin,
And we seek the heav’nly kingdom,
Jesus, Saviour, let us in!
From the fold, O gentle Shepherd!
We would wander never more;
To Thy loving breast enfold us,
Open wide for us the door.

Chorus:
Open wide for us the door!
We will leave Thee never more;
To Thy loving breast enfold us,
Open wide for us the door.

2 Only thro’ Thy tender mercy
Can we hope to enter there,
Where the stream of life is flowing,
Where the flow’rs are ever fair.
In that home, O blessed Saviour!
When this earthly life is o’er,
We would dwell with Thee forever;
Open wide for us the door. [Chorus]
