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

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.

Refrain
