Hymn: Words by William W. How (1867); Music by Justin H. Knecht (1799)..

Found in Cloudy Jewel, Chapter 23

 

O Jesus, Thou art standing,
Outside the fast closed door,
In lowly patience waiting
To pass the threshold o’er:
Shame on us, Christian brothers,
His name and sign who bear,
O shame, thrice shame upon us,
To keep Him standing there!

O Jesus, Thou art knocking;
And lo, that hand is scarred,
And thorns Thy brow encircle,
And tears Thy face have marred:
O love that passeth knowledge,
So patiently to wait!
O sin that hath no equal,
So fast to bar the gate!

O Jesus, Thou art pleading
In accents meek and low,
I died for you, My children,
And will you treat Me so?
O Lord, with shame and sorrow
We open now the door;
Dear Savior, enter, enter,
And leave us nevermore.
