Those blank, godless days that pall. Those doubts that lead to tears Those troubles, be they great or small That haunt us o’er the years We need some help to understand We need faith to face each task. We need courage to carry out God’s plan They’re there, if we’d but ASK! Parables are religious teachings So don’t dismiss them as absurd, Seek out the intent, be it hard reaching And find the truth behind each word It seems a simple thing to do. To knock, not hard at all! But try to take that fateful step, Pride comes before a fall. For when “that door” is opened wide We have no dark, deep place to hide We know we stand in God’s clear view. To knock’s a fearful thing to do! But knock, no need to stand and worry For God has promised love and more! So knock! There is no need to tarry, For heaven awaits beyond that door.
