O Jesu Thou art standing Outside the




O Jesus, Thou art standing,
outside the fast closed door,
In lowly patience waiting
to pass the threshold oer:
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.

O Jesu, Thou art standing,
outside the fast closed door,
In lowly patience waiting
to pass the threshold oer:
Shame on us, Christian brothers,
His Name and sign who bear,
O shame, thrice shame upon us,
to keep Him standing there!
