Go Beyond

Through the door
There is another world
A world beyond imagination

A lion, like a lamb,
Speaks gentle words to children
And those with faith like theirs
Who, by believing, 
Sees beyond

This lion, like all lions,
Is not safe,
Unlike any other
He is good; he can be trusted
He bears the scars of sacrifice
Though he is a king

Through the door
Go through the door
(Christ is the Door)
He is the King
He is good
“Follow Me,”
He says
Through the door
Come through the door
And go beyond
