Once I Wandered Far Away From God And Ho


Once I wandered far away from God and home;
But I heard the Savior’s call,
and to him I yielded all,
When he came knocking at my heart.

When he came knocking, when he came knocking,
When he came knocking at my heart;
Oh, I turned away from sin,
And I let the Savior in,
When he came knocking at my heart.

Long I closed my heart against my dearest Friend,
But he waits outside no more,
For I’ve opened wide the door,
And he is dwelling in my heart.

When he came knocking, when he came knocking,
When he came knocking at my heart;
Oh, I turned away from sin,
And I let the Savior in,
When he came knocking at my heart.

Since the Savior came to stay within my heart,
Waves of glory o’er me roll,
And there’s sunshine in my soul,
Since he is dwelling in my heart.

When he came knocking, when he came knocking,
When he came knocking at my heart;
Oh, I turned away from sin,
And I let the Savior in,
When he came knocking at my heart.

Soon I’ll stand outside the gates of glory bright;
He who washed away my sin
Then will bid his child come in,
When I come knocking at the gate.

When I come knocking, when I come knocking
When I come knocking at the gate;
He who washed away my sin
Then will bid his child come in,
When I come knocking at the gate.
