HE WAS WAITING AT THE ALTAR
As Recorded by the Louvin Brothers

He was waiting at the altar
When I knelt there, He lifted me.
When I trusted in Him it was over,
And my sin-sick soul He set free.
I had searched everywhere but could not find Him
Till I said, "Precious Lord, have Thy way!"
When I opened my heart, I felt His blood rushing in!
He was waiting at the altar, for me!

I was wandering aimless, I had searched far and wide
But I failed to find peace for my soul.
Like a lost weary traveler, then, I sat down and cried
For my burdens were too great a load.
Full of pride, and conceited, I was lost and astray
Till I laid down my soul at His feet.
I found Christ was the answer, and He met me halfway—
He was waiting at the altar, for me!
