Lyrics

The Savior is standing outside your heart’s door,
Will you not let Him come in just now?
He’s seeking for entrance, as often before,
Will you not let Him come in?

Refrain

Let Him come in, let Him come in,
Let the dear Savior come in just now;
Let Him come in, let Him come in,
Let the dear Savior come in.

Oh, why so unheeding to that loving call?
Will you not let Him come in just now?
Receive and confess Him your Lord before all—
Will you not let Him come in?

Refrain

Oh, why should you fear
Tho’ the whole world should frown?
Will you not let Him come in just now?
The Savior is waiting to give you a crown,
Will you not let Him come in?

Refrain

Take Jesus for pilot o’er life’s stormy sea;
Will you not let Him come in just now?
And from all its perils be evermore free—
Will you not let Him come in?

Refrain
