Show me the Door!

If you knew
There was a temple made of time
Which held a mystery

A day made of eternity

Wouldn’t you be racing
Aching for more
Asking every passer by
“Show me the door!”

If you knew
That a land where life was new
Flowed with delight

And crowned at its height
With a wedding banquet

Was waiting for you
And that you had a passport
but needed no transport
Wouldn’t you cry out all the more
“Show me the door!”

If you knew
That the One who made all
Opened a skylight

Let in the moonlight
When the bell tolled

And all was transformed there
Rooted and grew there
Into its true self
Learnt to be free
Wouldn’t you beg to be offered the key?

You know the alleyway
You know the wall

You know the songs to sing
You know the call

You know the dances
Come take the floor!

Angels of Sabbath

Here at the door!
