You don't knock
You don't knock, you just walk on in
The door
The door into heaven's inn
There's love
There's love and joy for you
To share
To share the whole day through

I know
I know my friends are there
To rest
To rest in the heaven's nest
You don't knock, ring, push a hole
The door's wide open a-waitin' for your soul
You don't knock, you just walk on in

I've walked life's winding road, oh yeah
Well, I'm tryin' to bear this load, oh yeah
And I traveled both night and day, oh yeah
So tired I could hardly pray, yeah
Well, Jesus, my Light, my Guide, oh yeah
Well, He's ever by my side, oh yeah
So, I'm walkin', not a-knockin' into heaven with pride

You don't knock
You don't knock, you just walk on in
The door
The door into heaven's inn
There's love
There's love and joy for you
To share
To share the whole day through

I know
I know my friends are there
To rest
To rest in the heaven's nest
You don't knock, ring, push a hole
The door's wide open a-waitin' for your soul
You don't knock, you just walk on in

I'll have no need to fear, oh yeah
Well, if He is ever near, oh yeah
He'll know my work was true, oh yeah
So glad the day is through, yeah
Well, it wasn't for me to say, oh yeah
I didn't think I'd make my way, oh yeah
So, I'm walkin', not a-knockin' into heaven with pride

You don't knock
You don't knock, you just walk on in
The door
The door into heaven's inn
There's love
There's love and joy for you
To share
To share the whole day through

Well, I know
I know my friends are there
To rest
To rest in the heaven's nest
You don't knock, ring, push a hole
The door's wide open a-waitin' for your soul
You don't knock, you just walk on in
