Songs & Lyrics

The Altar, The Hammer, Feel the nails by Ray Boltz

Song 1: The Altar

The service is nearing an end
The choir is singing “Just as I am”
And now as the old song is played
People at the altar are kneeling down to pray
Some are finding mercy
Forgiveness for their sins
Some are fighting battles
And they’re struggling to win
The time is come to give them to the Lord
That’s what this altar is for

That’s what this altar is for
You don’t have to carry those burdens any more
There’s a light in the darkness
There’s a love that’s true
And Jesus is waiting
He is waiting here for you
Go quickly now before they close the door
That’s what this altar is for

A father is praying with his son
Mother kneels beside them
Thanking God they’ve come
An old man is standing there in tears
Giving up a part of him that he’s held back for years
Hearts are being broken
Lives are being changed
Those who call upon Him they will never be the same
The time has come to give into the Lord
That’s what this altar is for

Go quickly now before they close the door
And you can give your burdens to the Lord
That’s what this altar is for…

Song 2: The Hammer

I was in the crowd
The day that Jesus died
And as He hung upon the cross
His mother cried

I saw the crown of thorns He wore
The stripes upon His back
The water and the blood ran out
And then the sky turned black
My mind was filled with anger
My heart was filled with shame

This man brought only healing
Who could bring Him pain
Why does it seem the strong
Always victimize the weak?
And suddenly I found myself
Standing to my feet

And I cried, “Who nailed Him there?
This Child of peace and mercy
Who nailed Him there?
Come and face me like a man
Who nailed Him there?”
And the crowd began to mock me
I cried, “Oh my God, I just don’t understand”
Then I turned and saw the hammer
In my hand

I am just a Roman soldier
An ordinary man
I love my wife and children
I do the best I can
How could I have killed Him?
There must be someone else
There’s got to be an answer
I just can’t blame myself

Who nailed Him there?
This Child of peace and mercy
Who nailed Him there?
Come and face me like a man
Who nailed Him there?”
And the crowd began to mock me
I cried, “Oh my God, I just don’t understand”
Then I turned and saw the hammer
In my hand

I nailed Him there
The child of peace and mercy
I nailed Him there
I am the guilty man
I nailed Him there
With my sins and my transgressions
I cried, “Oh my God, now I understand
When I turned and saw the hammer in my hand”

Song 3: Feel The Nails

Does he still feel the nails
Every time I fail
Can he hear the crowd cry “Crucify” again
Am I causing him pain
Then I know I’ve got to change
I just can’t bear the thought of hurting him.

Holy, holy
Holy is the Lord
Holy Holy
Holy is the Lord
