Hymn/Song Information

In the silent midnight watches




In the silent midnight watches,
List—thy bosom’s door!
How it knocketh, knocketh, knocketh,
Knocketh evermore!
Say not ‘tis thy pulse is beating,
‘Tis thy heart of sin;
‘Tis thy Saviour knocks,
and crieth, “Rise, and let Me in!”


Death comes down
with reckless footsteps
To the hall and hut;
Think you death will tarry knocking
When the door is shut?
Jesus waiteth, waiteth, waiteth;
But the door is fast:
Grieved, away thy Saviour goeth,
Death breaks in at last.


Then tis time to stand entreating
Christ to let thee in;
At the gate of heaven beating,
Wailing for thy sin!
Nay! Alas, thou guilty creature!
Hast thou then forgot?
Jesus waited long to know thee;
Now He knows thee not!
