Advent Hymnals

930. EVEN AT THE DOOR

Christ in Song,

1.
The coming King is at the door,
Who once the cross for sinners bore;
But now the righteous ones alone
He comes to gather home.

Chorus:
At the door, at the door,
At the door, yes, even at the door,
He is coming, he is coming,
He is even at the door.

2.
The signs that show his coming near,
Are fast fulfilling year by year,
And soon we'll hail the glorious dawn
Of heaven's eternal morn.  [Chorus]

3.
Look not on earth for strife to cease,
Look not below for joy and peace,
Until the Saviour comes again
To banish death and sin.  [Chorus]

4.
Then in the glorious earth made new
We'll dwell the countless ages thro';
This mortal shall immortal be,
And time, eternity.  [Chorus]
