The Altar and the Door

Album: The Altar and the Door (2008)
  • Careless, I am reckless
    I'm a wrong way traveling, slowly unraveling, shell of a man
    Burn out, I'm so numb now
    That the fire's just an ember way down in the corner, of my cold, cold heart

    Lord this time, I'll make it right
    Here at the altar I lay my life
    You're kingdom come and my will was done
    My heart is broken as I cry

    Like so many times before
    I flood my eyes
    I try before I leave the floor
    Oh Lord I try(I'll try)
    But this time Jesus how can I be sure
    I would not lose my follow through
    Between the altar and the door

    Here at the altar
    Oh my world so black and white
    How could I ever falter
    What you've show me to be right

    Lord this time (Lord this time)
    I'll make it right (make it right)
    Here at the altar I lay my life
    You're kingdom come, but my will was done
    My heart is broken as I cry

    Like so many times before
    I flood my eyes
    I try before I leave the floor
    Oh Lord I try(I'll try)
    But this time Jesus how can I be sure
    I would not lose my follow through
    Between the altar and the door

    I'm trying so hard, to stop trying so hard
    Just let you be who you are
    Lord who You are in me

    Jesus I'm trying so hard
    To stop trying so hard
    Just let you be who you are
    Lord who You are in me, Oh Lord I

    Like so many times before
    I flood my eyes
    I try before I leave the floor
    Oh Lord I try(I'll try)
    But this time Jesus how can I be sure
    I would not lose my follow through
    Between the altar and the door

    Like so many times before
    I flood my eyes
    I try before I leave the floor
    Oh Lord I try(I'll try)
    But this time Jesus how can I be sure
    I would not lose my follow through
    Between the altar and the door

    Try (trying so hard)
    Like so many times before (try so hard)Writer/s: JOHN MARK HALL
