I heard someone knocking at my heart's
And I looked to see that it was Jesus the Lord.
I knew right away that I could not let Him in
Because my heart was too dirty from the stains of sin.
Jealousy and strife hung on the walls
Lying and cheating littered the halls
Envy and lust hung on a shelf
Along with alcohol and drugs that I had put there
Hatred and malice was scattered all
Murder and robbery could even be found.
Fornication and adultery were plentiful too
Jesus kept knocking, but what could I do?
I said, "Lord, it's too dirty
for you to come in
Wait another day, and come back again.
Let me clean it up the best that I can
So that when you return, I'll be a better man".
But the Lord said, "Child, you
listen to me
There's no possible way you can get it clean.
You've tried and you've tried, but it still looks the
But I'll clean it for you by the power of my name".
"It's something that you just cannot do alone
But I'll wash it with my blood, because it is my home.
So open the door and let me come in
I'll clean up those dirty stains of sin".
I opened the door and He was faithful and true.
He cleaned it right up, now everything's new.
Now when my heart gets dirty,
it doesn't stay for long
Because Jesus, my Lord,
Keeps a very clean home.
