The Altar
Old Gospel Song

1. The service is nearing an end, the choir is singing "Just As I Am".
And now as the old song is played, people at the altar are kneeling down to pray------.
Some are finding mercy, forgiveness of their sins.
Some are fighting battles and struggling to the end------------.
The time has come to give them to the Lord
That's what this altar is for.
CHORUS:
That's what this altar is for, you don't have to carry those burdens anymore.
There's a light in the darkness, there's a love --- that's true.
Jesus is waiting, He's waiting here for you-----------.
Go quickly now before they close the door,
That's what this altar is for.

2. A father is praying with his son, a mother kneels beside them thanking God they've come.
An old man is standing there in tears, giving up a part of him that he's held back for years-----------.
Hearts are being broken, lives are being changed,
Those who call upon Him will never be the same-----------------.
The time has come to give in to the Lord,
That's what this altar is for.
CHORUS:
That's what this altar is for, you don't have to carry those burdens anymore.
There's a light in the darkness, there's a love --- that's true.
Jesus is waiting, He's waiting here for you------------.
Go quickly now before they close the door,
That's what this altar is for.

That's what this altar is for, you don't have to carry those burdens anymore.
There's a light in the darkness, there's a love --- that's true.
Jesus is waiting, He's waiting here for you-----------.
Go quickly now before they close the door,
You can give your burdens to the Lord,
That's what this altar is for.
