Bob Shane/Nick Reynolds/John Stewart

Chorus:
My heaven is so high, you can't get over it. So low, you can't get under it.
So wide, you can't get around it. You gotta come in at the door.

Tell those children, yeah, tell 'em now. You gotta come in at the door.
Don't stand and whisper, just show 'em how. You gotta come in at the door.

(Chorus)

Children of Israel, sing and shout and you gotta come in at the door.
You know the gates of heaven can't keep you out. You gotta come in at the door.

(Chorus)

Now if you're gonna head for the promised land, you gotta come in at the door.
Just step right up and shake his hand. You gotta come in at the door.

My heaven is so high, so low, so wide, you gotta come in at the door.

(Chorus)
