lyrics

all doubts and depression
born of guilt and separation
push your boat aho from the shore
but like a lighthouse beacon
his heart is always seeking
and then He comes a-knocking at your door

amid the problems and the pain
of ambition and sordid gain
this grinding of the face of the poor
He will lift up the lowly
the humble and not slowly
and then He comes a-knocking at your door

when He comes knocking at your door
we'll understand what this all meant
when He comes knocking at your door
you won't be disappointed

amid the conflict and confusion
of winning and then losing
brother against terror for oil
He was heaven sent
even for our president
and then He comes a-knocking at your door

amid the fears and frustrations
tumults and tribulations
of all of the whys and wherefores
it'll all flee as the night
vanishes with morning light
and then He comes a-knocking at your door
