An Altar Call

An old rugged book
Was the only thing I took
To the altar call

I craved emancipation
From chaos
I craved salvation.
I must answer redemption's
Call

I heard two voices in thin air
I heard them clear in my head.
I heard a third voice again
From the podium

My heart squeezed
I even sneezed,
For the sudden cold
That engulfed me.

Is my neighbour watching me?
Will he laugh to see me sing;
"I surrender all?"
God!

One step,
     Two step
           Three step
                   Four...

I was there
I did not fall.
Now, I'm glad I did 
Answer redemption's call
