Verse 1: O weary soul, the gate is near, In sin why still abide? Both peace and rest are waiting here And you are just outside.
Verse 2: Forgiveness Jesus will impart, To save your soul He died; How can you still offend His heart By staying just outside?
Verse 3: The day of life is passing by, Soon night your soul will hide; And then “too late” will be your cry, If you are just outside!
Verse 4: Come in, be free from stains of sin, Be glad, be satisfied; Before the tempest breaks, come in, And leave your past outside.
Chorus: Just outside the door, just outside the door, Behold it stands ajar! Just outside the door, just outside the door, So near and yet so far!
