O what shall I do to be saved?
The gathering storm I behold,
Exposed to the wrath of my God;
Is there no sheltering fold,
Is there no sheltering fold?

Refrain

I am the door, by Me if any man enter in,
He shall be saved, he shall be saved;
I am the door, by Me if any man enter in,
He shall be saved, he shall be saved.

O what shall I do to be saved?
No light, no hope can I see,
No help in myself can I find;
Is there no mercy for me,
Is there no mercy for me?

Refrain

O what shall I do to be saved?
So vile, so burdened with sin,
O how to the fold may I come,
How may I enter therein,
How may I enter therein?

Refrain

I enter the wide open door,
In Christ I now have believed;
I’m cleansed from my sins by His blood;
I trust, and now I am saved,
I trust, and now I am saved!

Refrain
