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

Charlotte Murray, in Living Hymns, by John Wanamaker & John R. Sweney (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: John J. Hood, 1890), number 7.

Arthur J. Smith (🔊 pdf nwc).

Jesus is waiting to welcome the weary,
Worn with the world’s fruitless striving for peace;
Tired with a night-watch that knoweth no morning,
Sick with a heartache that earth cannot ease.

Refrain

Jesus is seeking; Jesus is calling;
Will you not come to Him now?
Jesus is knocking; Jesus is waiting,
Waiting to save you now.

Jesus is waiting, He standeth and knocketh,
Calling in love unto each one oppressed?
Come unto Me, sinner, weary and laden;
I will receive you and give you My rest.

Refrain

Will you not come? you need no preparation;
Stay not to think, but come just as you are.
Bring nothing with you, for love giveth freely,
Peace—perfect peace—that no sorrow can mar.

Refrain

O, I am yearning to see you unburdened;
Death did I suffer that you might be free.
Will you not come, and by life consecration,
Try to win others, and bring them to Me?

Refrain
