Sara Groves - Tent In The Center Of Town (Live)

There's a tent in the center of town
the people have gathered around
cause they think they'll go there to see lions and bears
in the tent in the center of town
but it's all about the winning of soul
say the signs on the telephone poles
they say if you are blue jesus is calling you
to the tent in the center of town
the preacher is preaching his best
and he barely takes time for a breath
their hearts are complete in the bearable heat
in the tent in the center of town
the gentlemen give up their seats
to the women who've been on their feet
but it's standing room only when the holy of holies
enters the center of town
there's a tent in the center of town
where the people can gather around
who wouldn't step foot in a church
but who aren't afraid of a good news crusade
in the tent in the center of town
they say they're drawn in by the stripes on the awning
and the beautiful music inside
but they're drawn by the spirit that's pouring down
on the tent in the center of town
and revival hits like a wave
and hundreds are joyously saved
and the thief and adulterer lay it all on the altar
in the tent in the center of town
the time has come to move on
to the next hurting throng
and they hope as they tear it apart
the tent will live on in their hearts
i once was lost, but now i'm found
because of a tent in the center of town
