Behold," the Friend of sinners says,

"I stand at the door, and knock."

He is speaking to you and me,

"I stand at the door, and knock;

If any man will hear my voice,

I'll come in, and sup with him;

If any man opens his heart,

I'll come in, and sup with him."

Jesus, long I've heard You calling,

Gently knocking at my door;

But I had no will to open,

Though You knocked at my heart's door,

'Til, by love and grace unfailing,

You opened the door Yourself:

Now my heart bums for You, Savior-

Please don't leave me to myself.


Savior, see my door is open,

I have heard Your voice, Divine:

Enter, Lord, come take possession

Of my heart, and make it Thine!

Let me feast in sweet communion

On Your righteousness and blood:

Let me know Your cleansing power,

Christ, my Savior and my God.
