Crabb Family – Thank God For The Preacher lyrics

Verse I
As I walk down the street of a sin-stricken city
I see the misfortunes of men
A man in the gutter lying there lifeless
Clutching a bottle in hand

He was some mother's darling
Maybe some young man's father
But, now he's a prisoner to sin
No hugs in the morning and no family altar
He's gets by the best way he can

, who told me of Jesus
For I'd be a beggar if not for his grace
Lord help me show others, your love and your mercy
Make my life a witness to others I pray

Verse ii
At a little
white church house at an old tear stained altar
A prayer for god's mercy was heard
Though his sins were many and his burdens heavy
He took the Lord at his word
The angels rejoiced as he was forgiven
Shouts filled the temple that day
I will never get over that trip to the altar for I was that sinner who prayed
