Representative Text

1 Open the door off your heart today,
And let the sunshine in,
And scatter the shadows all away,
Of care, and doubt, and sin.

Chorus:
Open the door of your heart today;
God’s storehouse is not small;
His love is free in its own sweet way,
And there’s enough for all.

2 Open the door off your heart today,
To those whose love you need;
Let friendship enter its doors to stay,
And bless with word and deed. [Chorus]

3 Open the door off your heart today,
That has been clos’d too long;
Be glad, and sing as the birds of May,
A hopeful, helpful, song. [Chorus]

4 Open the door off your heart today,
And let all good things in,
To drive the bad and the sad away,
And keep out wrong and sin. [Chorus]
