When your Savior greets you

Full Text

1 When your Saviour greets you, and in love entreats you,
Take a careful look within your heart;
See how much you need Him, why you now should heed Him,
By a careful look within your heart.

Refrain:
Take a careful look within your heart,
Yes, a pray’rful look within your heart;
You may find the path of blessing
In unholiness confessing,
By a careful look within your heart.

2 When by doubts o’ertaken, and your faith is shaken,
Take a careful look within your heart;
You may find the reason in some thought of treason,
By a careful look within your heart. [Refrain]

3 When you think the Saviour has withdrawn His favor,
Take a careful look within your heart;
You may find sin hidden where your Lord was bidden,
By a careful look within your heart. [Refrain]

4 Whatsoever grieves you, or in trouble leaves you,
Take a careful look within your heart;
Peace may reign o’er sadness, turning grief to gladness,
By a careful look within your heart. [Refrain]
