16057. Come In

1 O Savior, Thou art pa­tient still,
Tho’ I have grieved Thee sore,
Have slight­ed Thee, be­trayed and
Denied Thee o’er and o’er;
Yet in Thy mer­cy wide and deep
Thou hast not turned away,
For lo! I find Thee wait­ing
Outside my door to­day.

Come in, come in,
Too long have I de­nied;
For O I need, I need Thee,
Whom once I cru­ci­fied.

2 I see Thee yon­der on the cross,
And hear Thy pray­er for me—
O love, O grace am­az­ing!
Dear Lord, how can it be?
It was my sins that nailed Thee there,
And Thou didst take my place
To die for my trans­gress­ions,
And for the hu­man race. [Refrain]

3 I yield at last, O bless­èd One,
The door stands op­en wide!
Behold, and hear me plead­ing
With Thee to come in­side.
Thy name shall be my sweet­est song,
My joy, my pride, my boast;
Come in, come, Ab­ba Fa­ther,
Come, Son and Ho­ly Ghost. [Refrain]
