Final Song

What would say, if you could say nothing after you said it?

For Keith Green, in 1978, it was this song. He lived to proclaim the wonder of Jesus and the Gospel of the Kingdom. The final song of NO COMPROMISE is called “Altar Call” and I think it was Keith’s attempt to say a “last word.” An attempt to goad Christians to faithfulness while inviting the non-Christians to believe. Keith’s life was about pointing people to Jesus. These posts have not been about idolizing Keith Green. He had his flaws just like you and me. But he knew what the gospel was and he knew what our mission was–to make disciples of Jesus. Remember that this Christmas. After the video below, there is a Christmas message from Keith written a year or two before he died. Merry Christmas. Enjoy the Savior by proclaiming His love for the world.

“And the Spirit and the bride say, ‘Come.’
And let the one who hears say, ‘Come.”
And let the one who is thirsty come;
let the one who wishes take the water of life without cost.”

Revelation 22:17

Altar Call

[Verse 1]
Some people won’t find out till it’s too late
That someone has to pay the price
You can pay it yourself or let someone else
But who would be that nice?

[Chorus 1]
To pay a debt that isn’t His
Well, I know someone like that
And He’s your best friend, He really is
He really loves you

[Verse 2]
Most people don’t find out till they’re half dead
That they need another life
You say you’ve heard everything that’s ever been said
About the Way, the Truth, the Life
You say you’ve heard lots of preaching all before
So many times

[Chorus 2]
But did you ever open up your door?
Give Him a chance
To prove Himself
Well, He’s real, you know

[Verse 3]
I hope you find out before it’s too late
That there’s really nobody else
You know it’s breaking His heart the longer you wait
‘Cause you’ve only been lying to yourself
‘Cause no one believes a thing you say
Not even you

[Chorus 3]
You know you’re gonna find out that He’s the way
No matter which way you choose
But I pray you find out by His love for you

[Outro]
Some people won’t find out till it’s too late
Some people won’t find out till it’s too late
Some people won’t find out till it’s too late
Some people won’t find out till it’s too late
Some people won’t find out till it’s too late
