Altar in My Heart

from by Sam Newcomer



I remember nights when I would go outside and lay beneath the trees
And there in that place was when I first laid my burdens at your feet
And I would talk about the day behind
And you would listen patiently
And I would gaze up at the month-old Nashville stars
And share like you were sitting next to me
O how you met me there beneath the trees

I remember when your spirit stole into my heart one afternoon
And I fell down on my knees and knew the glory of the gospel to be true
O what a strange and lovely fellowship
What you spoke through I spoke to you
And from my lips came shouts of well-befitting praise
There, laughing on the kitchen floor, I gave my life to you

O God I praise you for the times when I can't stand
I fall and look back at your ever-guiding hand
And store evidences of the mercy you impart
An altar in my heart
An altar in my heart

O I remember sinking into waters deep and warm and free
And I remember rising up to have your love descend on me
I remember your provision, your protection, might and power
Shining through my drunkenness, arriving in my desperate hour
From 65 I said hello to a now most familiar sky
And from the top of Love Circle I say goodbye, I say goodbye...
