Song background:

When I wrote a hymn version of this last year, the whole time I was imagining beautiful piano with it. I finally have that completed!

I actually started writing this song as a primary song (knocking would be such a great action for singing time!) but realized the topic seemed deeper. So, I changed it to a hymn. The lyrics in the chorus still sound simple like a primary song but sometimes we as adults need to hear that.

I feel like the main talk I used for this was one by Sharon Eubank from April 2019 General Conference. She talked about times when we need to draw to the Savior and how we do that. The concepts from that talk relate to so many people in so many different situations. I hope this song speaks in a similar way.

Lyrics: The Savior stands knocking. <br/>O come, ye weary soul, <br/>Come, those with questions, <br/>And those with scarlet wool. <br/>When paths fill with darkness <br/>And doubting clouds my sight <br/>Faithful prayers transform my view. <br/>I feel heaven’s light. <br/>Help my eyes to see, my ears to hear, <br/>My heart to open wide <br/>That I might feel the peace that comes <br/>When I let Him inside. <br/>The Savior stands knocking. <br/>I come to Him in steps. <br/>Each one will carry <br/>Eternal consequence. <br/>Though efforts feel awkward <br/>And weakness slows my stride <br/>When my gaze is lifted up <br/>Promises ignite. <br/>Help my eyes to see, my ears to hear, <br/>My heart to open wide <br/>That I might feel the peace that comes <br/>When I let Him inside. <br/>By op’ning to Jesus <br/>My burdens will be light, <br/>Deep wounds have healing, <br/>And crimson sins turn white. <br/>With ongoing action, <br/>Delaying change no more, <br/>Cheerful courage I will take; <br/>Blessings are assured. <br/>Help my eyes to see, my ears to hear, <br/>My heart to open wide <br/>That I might feel the peace that comes <br/>When I let the Savior inside.
