Does anybody know all the lyrics for "Altar of Prayer". I know part of it but can't remember it all. Here's what I can remember of the chorus:

At an altar of prayer, I met Jesus,
with compassion, (he dealt with?) me there,
And my burden so heavy was lifted,
When I met him at an altar of prayer.

Thanks.

These words were given to me by a friend. I hope they are correct. God bless.

AT AN ALTAR OF PRAYER

Many long years ago from heaven
Came a man of beauty so rare
With a heart full of love and mercy
And met me at an altar of prayer

(Chorus)
At an altar of prayer, I met Jesus
With compassion, He welcomed me there
And my burdens so heavy were lifted
When we met at an altar of prayer

Many times when my heart is heavy
I need someone I know who cares
And the one that I need is Jesus
And I can find Him at an altar of prayer

(Chorus)

If your heart is weighed down with problems
And you're caught in sins wicked snare
You will find peace and rest in the Savior
Just meet Him at an altar of prayer

(Chorus)
