    Lyrics

    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
