Representative Text

1 Why keep Jesus waiting, qaiting in the cold?
He will bear you gently, gently to His fold;
See Him, soul, and open, open, I implore.

2 Why keep Jesus waiting, waiting at the door?
Oft He knocketh softly, woftly, o’er and o’er;
Hear Him, soul, and open, open, I implore.

3 Why keep Jesus pleading, pleading at the door?
He would be your Savior, ever, evermore;
Love Him, soul, and open, open, I implore.

4 Why keep Jesus waiting— knocking at the door?
Soon He’ll cease His pleading, yes, forevermore;
Come, poor soul, obey Him, open, I implore.
