​The Altar

This song is by Ray Boltz and appears on the album The Altar (1989) and on the live album The Concert Of A Lifetime (1995).

Just as I am without one plea
But that thy blood was shed for me
And that thou bidd'st me come to thee
Of Lamb of God I come, I come...

1st verse
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 for their sins
Some are fighting battles
And they're struggling to win
The time is come to give them to the Lord
That's what this altar is for

That's what this altar is for
You don't have to carry those burdens any more
There's a light in the darkness
There's a love that's true
And Jesus is waiting
He is waiting here for you
Go quickly now before they close the door
That's what this altar is for

2nd verse
A father is praying with his son
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 they will never be the same
The time has come to give into the Lord
That's what this altar is for

Go quickly now before they close the door
And you can give your burdens to the Lord
That's what this altar is for...
