Will Jesus wait outside the door

Representative Text

1 Will Jesus wait outside the door
Of my poor sinful heart?
Or shall I hear His voice no more;
Will He from me depart?

Come in, come in, O Christ, come in,
The door stands open wide,
Come in, and cleanse my heart from sin,
And with me, Lord, abide.

2 So many years I’ve lived in sin,
And let Him knock in vain,—
Refused to let the Saviour in,
The Lamb for sinners slain. [Refrain]

3 I’ve heard His voice, His gentle call,
As from the heav’ns above;
Pleading that I surrender all,
And trust His tender love. [Refrain]

4 I will surrender to my Lord,
I’ll keep Him out no more;
This day my heart shall trust His word
And open wide the door. [Refrain]
