Let the blessèd Savior in,
He will cleanse from every sin;
He is waiting at thy door,
Hear Him calling o’er and o’er.

Refrain

Let Him in, let Him in;
Let the blessèd Savior in;
Do not keep Him longer waiting,
Let the blessèd Savior in.

Refrain

Still His mercy pleads with thee,
Come and find redemption free;
Weak and helpless tho’ thou art,
He will bind thy broken heart.

Refrain

Still in pity, lo, He stands,
Reaching forth His wounded hands;
Grieve His patient love no more,
Open now the bolted door.
