1 A Friend who’s knocking at thy heart’s door,
A Friend who often has knocked before;
He waits so patiently just outside;
It is Christ the Lord.
‘Tis the King at the door, let Him in,
He will cleanse you from guilt and from sin;
Oh, the matchless love of the King above,
To be standing there!
2 He knocks so gently with nail-pierced hand;
Ah, who His pleading could long withstand!
Blest Son of God, mighty Friend of man,
Stands at thy heart’s door. [Refrain]
3 The King of glory now waits outside,
My heart’s closed door I will open wide;
Come in, dear Savior, and e’er abide,
Be my all in all. [Refrain]
