I sat in the alley outside Heaven's door
Leaned against an emerald wall with four more
We were the castoffs of those waiting in line
Who gave pleasant glances and shuffled on by

I watched a man enter who wore ragged clothes
The angels all smiled with a charitable glow
A woman who hobbled, a child barely born
There were many who entered, so certainly the Lord's

I am the one who waits by the wall
I am the one the Lord long ago called
I will not enter Heaven with the souls of men
I will sit here and wait for the Lord to call me again
