Representative Text

1 Only a doorkeeper though I may be,
Here in Thy temple, if waiting on Thee,
Lord, I am honored, tho' humble the place,
Meekly receiving Thy dews of grace.

Waiting, waiting, just outside the door;
Waiting, waiting, Lord, I ask no more;
Only a doorkeeper gladly I’ll be,
If I may gather a soul for Thee.

2 Only a doorkeeper, yet to my heart
Gently Thy Spirit a word may impart;
Something that, spoken in kindness for Thee,
Light to a soul in the dark may be. [Refrain]

3 Only a doorkeeper, praying for all,
Sharing the crumbs from Thy table that fall;
Only a doorkeeper; Lord, I am blest;
Duty is pleasure, and toil is rest. [Refrain]
