Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: If any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me.@Revelation 3:20

Working for our Master in this world below,
Striving to be helpful everywhere we go;
Asking those who’re weary with their load of sin,
To heed Jesus’ calling and let Him come in.


Hear Him knocking now,
Let Him not depart,
Open wide the door,
And ask Him to enter and dwell in your hearts.

Working for our Savior every day and hour,
Making known His goodness, mercy, peace and power;
Showing those who wander in the paths of sin,
The good things He’s promised if they let Him in.


Working for our Savior with a heart that’s strong,
Helping Him with good to overcome the wrong;
Pointing those in darkness o’er and o’er again,
To Jesus, who asks them to let Him come in.
