Why Keep Jesus Waiting Waiting At The Do

Why keep Jesus waiting, waiting at the door?
Why resist the Spirit, o’er and o’er?
O how hard thy heart must be!
O how blind with sin!
That so good and kind a guest may not enter in!

Open now your heart,
Let the Savior in,
Sinner, now admit him and be saved from sin.

Why keep Jesus standing, weary, faint and sore?
Why not open gladly, now the door?
O how tenderly he pleads,
And how patient he!
Canst thou still resist such grace and such love to thee? [Refrain]

Why not now accept him, trust his grace and live?
For his heart is ready, to forgive.
Shall his love resisted be?
Shall he plead in vain?
Shall he leave thee, nevermore to return again? [Refrain]
