Heaven’s Door is too Heavy

Let me never build walls across doors that Jesus has opened,
Let me never declare unclean that which Christ has washed spotless,
As if closing the doors of my heart could seal heaven’s door.
Heaven’s doorway is wider than my arms can stretch,
So I could never block out the masses that Immanuel invites,
Let me never stretch my arms further than I could quickly fold them to embrace all who enter.
Heaven’s door is too heavy for me to open and close, to sift the riff-raff,
It is too for me but wide enough for me to walk in with gratitude and all those who choose to.
