O, let us exalt our dear Lord and proclaim,
In songs of true gratitude, praise to His name!
As songs of the angels in sweetest accord,
Our thanks and our praises shall rise to the Lord.

Lyrics
Knocking, knocking, Who is there?
Waiting, waiting, O, how fair!
'Tis a Pilgrim, strange and kingly,
Never such was seen before,
Ah! my soul, for such a wonder,
Wilt thou not undo the door?

Knocking, knocking, still He's there,
Waiting, waiting, wond'rous fair;
But the door is hard to open,
For the weeds and ivy-vine,
With their dark and clinging tendrils,
Ever 'round the hinges twine.

Knocking, knocking, what! still there?
Waiting, waiting, grand and fair;
Yes, the pierced hand still knocketh,
And beneath the crowned hair
Beam the patient eyes, so tender,
Of thy Saviour, waiting there.

Amen.
