When I Lay My Isaac Down

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 “Give him to me
On this mountain you will prove,
It’s you and Isaac, or it’s me and you”

When I lay my Isaac down
Broken heart but my Fathers proud
On this altar here he lays
Just to find it wasn’t him he/(God) wanted me

Most of us I’d dare to say
Have an Isaac in God’s way
On the Altar God will prove
It’s not your Isaac that he wants
He wants you

Chorus

On this altar here he lays
Just to find it wasn’t him he/(God) wanted me

The Day I Lay My Isaac Down
by Lowell Alexander, Dave Clark, Bonnie Keen & Tony Wood


                I have a prayer as pure as gold
                That where You lead me I will go
                And I'll embrace the holy plea
                Each time your Spirit calls to me

                And in that hour, and in that time
                When I must lose my will in Thine
                My true devotion will be found
                The day I lay my Isaac down

                Each sacrifice You call me to
                I'll die to self, I'll live for You
                Take up the cross, forsake the crown
                The day I lay my Isaac down

                Your Lamb of Love, Thy blessed friend
                Nailed to the altar for each sin
                There in my place Your Son was bound
                The day You laid Your Isaac Down

                Each sacrifice You call me to
                I'll die to self, I'll live for You
                Take up the cross, forsake the crown
                The day I lay my Isaac down
   
                Take up the cross, forsake the crown
                The day I lay my Isaac down


This song appears on the EXPERIENCING GOD album

This is how my church sings it..

'When I Lay My Isaac Down'

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”

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 yoou..

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

CHORUS:

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!!

this is an amazing song divinely given by the precious holy spirit. God wants every inch of us and he will get out attention if he needs too, praise the name of the lord.

THOMAS - PRIMITIVE QUARTET

THOMAS SAT DOWN AT THE TABLE
AND BURRIED HIS FACE IN HIS HANDS
SUDDENLY GRIEF OVERTOOK HIM
FOR HE HAD JUST LOST HIS BEST FRIEND

THEY NOT ONLY CRUCIFIED JESUS
THEY CURSED HIM AND PUT HIM TO SHAME
SHAKEN BY WHAT HE HAD WITNESSED THAT DAY
THOMAS WOULD NOT BE THE SAME.

THEY CROWNED HIM WITH THORNS THEY HAD GATHERED
AND ONE OF THEM SPAT IN HIS FACE
FATHER FORGIVE THEM HE CRIED OUT
HANGING IN A GUILTY MANS PLACE

THEY TENDERLY WRAPPED HIM IN LINEN
AND CAREFULLY SEALED UP HIS TOMB
THREE DAYS LATER THOMAS THOUGHT HE SAW A GHOST
FACE TO FACE IN THAT OLD UPPER ROOM

I AM YOUR KING, THOMAS I LIVE
WHAT MUST I DO, BEFORE YOU’RE CONVINCED
LOOK AT MY HANDS, COME TOUCH MY SIDE
WHAT MORE WILL YOU NEED, BEFORE YOU BELIEVE
I AM ALIVE.
()
YOU SAW THEM PEIRCING MY BODY
AND YOU HEARD THAT OLD HAMMER RING
YOU SAW THE TOMB WHERE THEY LAY ME
BUT THE GRAVE HAS NO HOLD ON THE KING

OH THOMAS I KNOW HOW YOU’RE HURTING
AND THOMAS I KNOW HOW YOU’VE CRIED
LIFT UP YOUR HEAD, BELIEVE WITH YOUR HEART
COME PLACE YOUR HAND IN MY SIDE

I AM YOUR KING, THOMAS I LIVE
WHAT MUST I DO, BEFORE YOU’RE CONVINCED
LOOK AT MY HANDS, COME TOUCH MY SIDE
WHAT MORE WILL YOU NEED, BEFORE YOU BELIEVE
I AM ALIVE.

WHAT MORE WILL YOU NEED, BEFORE YOU BELIEVE
I AM ALIVE.
