Old Fashioned Altar Call

Previously recorded by Palmetto State Quartet.

 

Written by Daryl Williams

 

VERSE 1

IF I LIVE A HUNDRED YEARS OR MORE

I WON’T FORGET

THE PLACE THE LORD REDEEMED ME

OR THAT SPECIAL WAY WE MET

THE PREACHER ASKED IF ANYONE

WOULD LIKE TO MEET THIS MAN

THEN HE LOOKED RIGHT STRAIGHT AT ME

AND SAID “I SEE THAT HAND”

 

 

CHORUS

IT WAS AND OLD FASHIONED ALTAR CALL

WHERE THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD CAME DOWN

HALLELUJAHS ROLLED WHEN HE BLESSED MY SOUL

AND TURNED MY WHOLE LIFE AROUND

SIN MET GRACE IN THAT HALLOWED PLACE

GLORY BEGAN TO FALL

I LEFT THE PEW AND FOUND LIFE ANEW

AT AN OLD FASHIONED ALTAR CALL

 

 

VERSE 2

FROM WHERE I SAT THAT ALTAR SEEMED

A HUNDRED MILES AWAY

BUT I’M SO GLAD I MADE THE MOVE

AND STEPPED OUT ANYWAY

‘CAUSE SOMETHING GOT A HOLD OF ME

AS I WALKED DOWN THE AISLE

JESUS SAVED MY SOUL

AND I JUST SHOUTED FOR A WHILE
