C.T. Townsend Version - When I Lay My Isaac Down

Found the lyrics here in the comments
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tMjPvmawLJ0

Now Abraham prayed for the day, 
That God would give him a son 
Blessed Isaac was his name, 
The greatest gift he'd ever known 
Then came the day, who would have dreamed 
God would say "Gotta Give him to me 
On this mountain you Must prove, 
It's you and Isaac, or it's me and you"Â 

When I lay my Isaac down, 
With a Broken heart but my Fathers proud, 
On this altar where he lays 
Just to find it wasn't him God wanted me 

Most of us I'd dare to say 
With an Isaac in God's way 
On this Altar you can prove 
It's not your Isaac that God wants 
He wants you.. 

When I lay my Isaac down 
With a Broken heart but my Fathers proud 
On this altar where he lays 
Just to find it wasn't him God wanted me

Thanks, SongInMyHeart, I do appreciate your help and for the words in the comments, for link and the video

In C.T Townsend version, he had some more lyrics, he sangs
Here is some of the words ---> I surrender all to Jesus . . . . . . . ..( plus more lyrics )

And I have noticed the other artists who sangs this song don't add the other lyrics for some reason , Mr. Townsend does.

Here is the transcription from the C.T Townsend recording

Abraham prayed for the day
God would give him a son 
Blessed Isaac was his name 
The greatest gift he'd ever known 
Then came the day, who would have dreamed 
God would say you gotta give him back to me 
And on this mountain you must prove 
That it's you and Isaac or it's me and you 

So when I lay my Isaac down
With a Broken heart but my Father's proud 
On this altar where he lay 
Just to find it that it wasn't him
God wanted me 

Now most of us I'd dare to say 
Oh we've got an Isaac standing in God's way
But it's on this altar you too can prove 
That it's not your Isaac that God wants 
But He wants you

And when I lay my Isaac down 
With a broken heart but my Father's proud 
And on this altar where he lay
Just to find that it wasn't him
God wanted me

All to Jesus I surrender
All to Him I freely give
I will ever love and trust Him
In His presence daily live
Oh and I surrender all
Yeah I surrender all
All to Thee my Blessed Savior

When I lay my Isaac down 
With a broken heart but my Father's proud 
And on this altar where he lay
Just to find that it wasn't him
God wanted me

Ah, I do Thank You, very much, SongInMyHeart for all your help, you have gave me.

And, that is really interesting and good how Mr . Townsend have incorporated another song (hymn - I Surrender All ) within this song. (when I lay my Isaac down ).

And I see why to because the song of when I lay my Isaac down is about our will has to surrender to Jesus, no matter what we want. The best thing for us is always yield our whole being to God.

Thank Again and God Bless You, SongInMyHeart
