"The Altar [From the Altar]" as written by and Ray Boltz Steve Millikan....
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 sin
Some are fighting battles
And they're struggling to win

The time has come
To give them to the Lord
That's what the 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
And Jesus is waiting
He is waiting here for you

Go quickly now
Before they close the door
That's what the altar is for

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
And 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

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
And Jesus is waiting
He is waiting here for you

Go quickly now
Before they close the door
That's what the 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
