A King at the Door

The Lord sings over us and I am thankful that some of that overflows into clay vessels. Wes 7 February 2023

(Verse 1)
Oh sinner,
do you think you hear someone at the door,
What if He’s the One
that your heart's been searching for?
This could be your last chance,
let Him come and make you new,
Then His fire will refine and He'll sanctify you.

There's a King at the door and He's waiting for you,
There’s a King at the door and He’s waiting for you.

(Verse 2)
The Alpha,
He was there when the world began to spin,
He'll be there when all time comes to an end.
He's the Lamb that was slain
to forgive your sins and mine,
Please do not shut Him out
or you'll be left behind.

There's a King at the door and He's waiting for you,
There’s a King at the door and He’s waiting for you.

He's the King of all kings,
He's the bright and morning star,
And He's here asking you to come
just the way you are.
All your sin, all your shame,
could be covered by His Blood,
There's a knock at your heart,
won't you answer.
It's Love.

There's a King at the door and He's waiting for you,
There's a King at the door and He's waiting for you,
The King is at the door and He's waiting...
