make me a doorkeeper

make me a doorkeeper, what more could I seek?  make me a doorkeeper, Your company to keep

make me a doorkeeper – it’s who I want to be; make me a doorkeeper – everyday Your face to see

make me a doorkeeper – it’s what I want to do;  make me a doorkeeper – so I can be near You

make me a doorkeeper –  though my life won’t be my own; even King David thought to be Your doorkeeper better than his earthly throne

let me sit at Your threshold, let me stand at Your door;  bestow on me this favor – I couldn’t ask for more

better to be a servant in Your house, than to be ruler in my own;  I long to live in Your house – this world is not my home

better to stand at Your door for a day, learning to love You – following in Your way

than to lie in the palaces of the wicked forever, pursuing their pleasures while missing the treasures

of abiding under the shelter of Your wings;  receiving Your protection along with all good things

yes, make me a doorkeeper in the house where You are;  so from Your Holy Spirit I will never be far

in Your house are peace and joy, comfort, healing and forgiveness abound –   death and despair are banished forever, as Your praises continually sound

yes, make me a doorkeeper and that’s what I’ll be;  serving in Your presence for eternity

“Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere; I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked.”  (Psalm 84:10)

“Blessed is the man who listens to Me, watching daily at my doors, waiting at my doorway.  For whoever finds Me finds life and receives favor from the Lord.”  (Proverbs 8:34-35)

“He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.”  (Psalm 91:4)

” . . . but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.”  (Psalm 34:10)

sincerely,    Grace Day
