Christ said that I am the Door,
Now that is plain to see,
No man cometh to the Father
Except he comes in the Door, by Me.
If you try to get in
Without wearing his name,
Do you think that what Christ said,
That that doesn't mean a thing?
Now Christ gave the church a name;
Don't you think that name will do?
Why give it another? You must not add to.
There just isn't any way
That you can climb up.
You may try to build one,
But he said that He would root it up.
And Christ gave the name of the church
That the church wore,
And Christ is the head of the church,
And that head is the Door.
When you change His plan,
Don't you know that that is sin;
That you are teaching for doctrine
The Commandments of men?
I ought to please God
And reverence His word,
And take what it says,
And not what I have heard.
