WHEN I LAY MY ISAAC DOWN
Verse 1. Abraham, prayed for the day,
God would give him a son,
Blessed Isaac was 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.
Chorus. When I lay my Isaac down,
With a broken heart,
But my Father's proud,
On this altar where he lays,
Just to find it wasn't him he wanted me.
Verse 2. 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.
Chorus Again (x2)
Tag. On this altar where he lays,
Just to find it wasn't him,
God wanted me.
