As I watch our people come to this alter and pray,
They know that the Lord hears what they say.
And when my family comes to this alter in the same way,
Lord, the feelings swell up in my heart right away.
This alter is a wonderful place, where burdens are laid there,
It's a place where you can go just to kneel in prayer,
But, it's also a place where you can go to receive the power
Give the Lord thanks for being that strong, and mighty tower.
The power of our Lord's house is a strong and majestic place,
If you look around you can see Jesus, on many a face,
Lord, when the Holy Spirit comes it's so hard just to sit still,
Our Father works in mysterious ways when we do His will.
The alter is a wonderful place where burdens are laid there,
But, it's also a place where you can go just to kneel in prayer.
Lord, You are a powerful God, You, hear the smallest request.
Even though, sometimes, our faith is often put to the test.
You wrap us up in Your loving arms.
