I found myself seated in the line of fire. That ole' preacher man sure had the holy power. With his bible he read my life like he knew it well. The more I put up my defense, the more conviction fell.
I took a walk, I took a walk down to the altar that night. I knelt to pray, I knelt to pray I cried I want to make things right. What they were singing slips my memory, there's a lot I can't recall. But I won't forget the mercy and I won't forget the walk.
As they opened up the hymn book and began to sing. A cloud of joy filled the building like a covering. With the invitation given, sinner won't you pray. The more I tried to leave the more I couldn\'t get away.
Repeat chorus (X 2)
But I won't forget the mercy and I won't forget the walk.
