Knocking, Knocking, Who Is There?

Hymn Writer ~ Harriet B. Stowe,1811 - 1896

Hymn Music ~ George F. Root, 1820 - 1895

Stanza 1:

Knocking, knocking, who is there?

Waiting, waiting, oh, 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?

Stanza 2:

Knocking, knocking! still He’s there:

Waiting, waiting, wondrous 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.

Stanza 3:

Knocking, knocking—what, still there?

Waiting, waiting, grand and fair!

Yes, the piercèd hand still knocketh,

And beneath the crownèd hair

Beam the patient eyes, so tender,

Of thy Savior waiting there.
