While searching for memories of bygone days
I saw an old church by the side of the way
Its windows were broken, weeds covered the door
And I was compelled to enter once more
The plaster was falling, the roof caving in
No longer did anyone worship within
Like a statue of honor, the altar stood there
To rescue the pershing who knelt there in prayer

If the altar could talk, what would it say
Would it tell of the many who had knelt there to pray
Would it show of the tearstains there in its wood
As they cried for the evil and rejoiced with the good
If the altar could talk, oh what a tale,
Would it boast of the blood that kept souls out of Hell
Paint a picture of lives changed as down the aisle they walked
There'd be no end to the story if the altar could talk


I went down to a room where children once learned
Of a Heaven to gain and a Hell that burns
One lonely book lay open on the floor
I picked it up and read its pages once more
It told of the Christ Who rose from the grave
To redeem the lost, His life freely gave
Then my mind went back to where the altar stood
It was a lighthouse for all the weary fashioned in wood.


If the altar could talk, what would it say
Would it tell of the many who had knelt there to pray
Would it show of the tearstains there in its wood
As they cried for the evil and rejoiced with the good
If the altar could talk, oh what a tale,
Would it boast of the blood that kept souls out of Hell
Paint a picture of lives changed as down the aisle they walked
There'd be no end to the story if the altar could talk
Oh what a story if the altar could talk
