"AT ALTAR'S BASE"

ONCE I WAS A LONER
NEVER LOOKING UP ...
ALWAYS HANGING LOW MY HEAD
WHILE HOLDING OUT MY CUP

BLINDLY BEGGING FOR A CRUMB
I'VE HOPED IN ALL THE WRONG
CALLING OUT TO EVERYONE
EXCEPT WHOM I BELONG

BUT NOW ON KNEES AT ALTAR'S BASE
I HUMBLY CALL YOUR NAME
JESUS CHRIST, MY LORD, MY LIFE
RECEIVING TONGUES AFLAME

I KNOW NOW, YOU'RE THE ANSWER
TO SIN AND NEED AND FOE
SURE, SOMEDAY I'LL LEAVE HERE
BUT 'TILL THEN I MUST SOW

YES, BE A FAITHFUL WITNESS
GLEAN EVERY CHANCE I CAN
FOR SOULS MUST KNOW THAT THERE IS HOPE
-THE COMING SON OF MAN

AND 'TILL THAT TIME OF PASSING
YOUR HAND I FIRMLY HOLD
FEASTING ON YOUR HOLY WORD
WHILE SINGING PSALMS OF OLD

AND IF WE FLY BEFORE THEN
IN AIR, LORD, WE SHALL MEET
MOUNTED UP WITH EAGLES' WINGS
AND NESTED AT YOUR FEET
