Here at the Altar

My God showed His love for me

When He died on Calvary
The punishment He bared
So that I might be spared

The flesh ripped from His back
Now salvation I will not lack
The thorns pressed on His head
Assure me of my future ahead

Some gave looks of scorn
While others stood to mourn
But I choose to celebrate
What was once my fate

Your love given from within
Though You knew I'm full of sin
I know sometimes I falter
But here I stand at the alter

Ready to be made brand new
Now my life I give to You
By the power of Your name
I stand here with no shame
