Weighty Words

When Praise Demands a Sacrifice

The call to go to Mount Moriah came to Abraham
But the off'ring placed before the Lord was not a lamb
He bound his only son and when the knife was raised
A sacrifice became the price of praise


When praise demands a sacrifice, I'll worship even then
Surrendering the dearest things in life
And if devotion costs me all
He'll find me faithful to His call
When praise demands a sacrifice

The call to go to Calvary came to God's own son
An alter waited for the lamb he would become
His hands reached up to Heaven as the cross was raised
And with His life he paid the price of praise

Repeat Chorus

God hears the words of praise we lift, yet I have found
He's honored more by what I'm willing to lay down

Repeat Chorus

sung by Larnelle Harris
