1 My heart was closed to Jesus,
Of his love I could not sing;
My life gave back no answer
To the knock of Christ my King.

Refrain:
O the knocking of the King,
O the knocking of the King;
I’m happy since I listened
To the knocking of the King.

2 But O the love of Jesus
Unto me such joy did bring,
When I my heart did open
To the knock of Christ my King. [Refrain]

3 My life I yield to Jesus,
Of his love and praise I sing;
I’m happy since I listened
To the knock of Christ my King. [Refrain]

4 How sweet to live for Jesus,
Unto him alone I cling,
Since my sad heart made answer
To the knock of Christ my King. [Refrain]
