Just Now. . .

After a powerful campmeeting sermon on repentance, L. H. Baker, the evangelist, called seekers forward for prayer.  A refined woman of high social standing responded to the invitation, but struggled to break through spiritually.  She had come forward to give, but not to receive.

The great hymn writer, Mrs. C. H. Morris, quietly joined her at the altar, put her arm around the seeking woman's shoulder, and said, "Just now, your doubting give over."

Hearing this, the campmeeting musician, H. L. Gilmour, chimed in, "Just now, reject Him no more!"

Evangelist, L. H. Baker, added, "Just now, throw open the door!"

Mrs. Morris followed up with, "Let Jesus come into your heart."

The woman found spiritual victory, and a new hymn was birthed that night:  "Let Jesus Come Into Your Heart."

If you are tired of the load of your sin,
Let Jesus come into your heart;
If you desire a new life to begin,
Let Jesus come into your heart.

Refrain
Just now, your doubtings give o’er;
Just now, reject Him no more;
Just now, throw open the door;
Let Jesus come into your heart.

If it’s for purity now that you sigh,
Let Jesus come into your heart;
Fountains for cleansing are flowing nearby,
Let Jesus come into your heart.

Refrain

If there’s a tempest your voice cannot still,
Let Jesus come into your heart;
If there’s a void this world never can fill,
Let Jesus come into your heart.

Refrain

If you would join the glad songs of the blest,
Let Jesus come into your heart;
If you would enter the mansions of rest,
Let Jesus come into your heart.
