Behold me standing at the door

Behold me standing at the door,
and hear me pleading evermore,
with gentle voice: O heart of sin,
may I come in? May I come in?
Refrain:
Behold me standing at the door,
and hear me pleading evermore:
say, weary heart, oppressed with sin,
may I come in? May I come in?


I bore the cruel thorns for thee,
I waited long and patiently:
say, weary heart, oppressed with sin,
may I come in? May I come in? Refrain

I would not plead with thee in vain;
remember all my grief and pain!
I died to ransom thee from sin,
may I come in? May I come in? Refrain

I bring thee joy from heaven above,
I bring thee pardon, peace, and love:
say, weary heart, oppressed with sin,
may I come in? May I come in? Refrain

(1820-1915)
