1. Behold Me standing at the door, And hear Me pleading evermore, With gentle voice: oh, 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?
2. 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?
3. 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?
4. I bring thee joy from heav’n above, I bring thee pardon, peace, and love: Say, weary heart, oppressed with sin, May I come in? May I come in?
