Lyrics

You know that you need
The dear Savior of men,
And yet you have spurned Him
Again and again;
Why don’t you the door
Of your heart open wide,
And bid your Redeemer
Come in and abide?

Refrain

Now is the time to decide,
Now is the time to decide,
Reject Him no more,
Open wide your heart’s door,
Just now is the time to decide.

Your life without Jesus
Cannot be complete;
His love shed abroad
In the heart makes it sweet;
And once you have tasted
The joys He will give,
You’ll wonder how ever
Without Him you’d live.

Refrain

He bears every burden,
He dries every tear,
Gives strength for each weakness
And casts out all fear;
With manna from Heaven
Your soul He will feed,
His riches in glory
Supply every need.

Refrain

These blessings are yours
Without money or price;
He asks not a thing
But complete sacrifice;
And what you will give
You can never compare
With all the rich gifts
That with you He will share.
