That’s What The Altar Is For

Words & music by Chaz Spencer and Courtney Spencer

Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. -Hebrews 4: 16

Verse 1
For many generations,
We've come to this place
To gather in His presence
And fall upon His grace
This is still the atmosphere 
Where Heaven touches hearts
Where miracles can happen 
And where the healing starts
Come broken and bruised
Shattered and scarred
Come hurting and hopeless 
Come as you are
To the place of surrender
Where God can restore 
You don't have to leave the same
That's what the altar is for
Verse 2
There's no need to hide
There's no need to run away
Don't ignore the calling
Or it just might be too late
This could be the moment
Where you are finally changed 
Where new life is beginning
And the past is now erased
It may be a wooden bench
That's been stained by tears
Where you can step out in faith
And let go of all your fears
But any moment, any time, any where
The altar is simply a place wherever God is near
