Lyrics:

The Door of Your Heart by Jill Shannon


When Your heart breaks, who will comfort You
And who can know the sorrow in Your eyes
Gazing on injustice in the earth
On the hungry ones, the helpless ones

And who are they that You would call Your friends
For those the world despises, who will cry
Imprisoned and impoverished in the dust
The voiceless ones, the hopeless ones

CHORUS
We enter the door of Your heart, into the gate of Your pain
And when our souls are torn and broken we can dance upon injustice
Your kingdom come, Your will be done, Your justice reign

Bridge:
For the first door is a portal to salvation
And the second door the inner court of love
But few would choose to enter the chamber of repentance
Rachel weeping for her children

If Your cup of wrath would overflow
Who could bear Your judgment on our land
Who will hear the blood cry from the ground
The mourning ones, the broken ones

Bridge 2:
For the tears of Your people are an offering
And our weeping as the evening sacrifice
But few would wear Your sorrow, though none could bear Your anger
Or the harvest swept away with fire

How the heavens tremble when You groan
Your weeping sends a shaking in the earth
Who will come to fill the cup of tears
O Holy One, O Righteous One


CHORUS
Enter the door of His heart, into the gate of His pain
And when our souls are torn and broken
We will dance upon injustice
Your kingdom come, Your will be done, Your justice reign
