SS&S 441: IN THE SILENT MIDNIGHT WATCHES

1. 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!”

 

2. 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.

 

3. 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!
