Inspiring Hymns #162

 The Old Book and the Old Faith

‘Mid the storms of doubt and unbelief, we fear, stands a Book eternal that the world holds dear;  Thro’ the restless ages it remains the same, ’tis the Book of God, and the Bible is its name!

‘Tis the Book that tells us of the Father’s love, when He sent His Son to us from heav’n above, Who by richest promise creates hope within, for ’tis thro’ His blood we are saved from ev’ry sin!

‘Tis the Book that tells us of the will of God, and the Savior’s teachings while the earth He trod, how He soothed earth’s sorrows, and relieved its woe, thro’ whom strength is given to conquer ev’ry foe!

‘Tis the Book that tells us of eternal life, after faithful service in a world of strife, and this glorious triumph over death’s dark fears is the world’s best gift in an age of countless tears!

Chorus:  The Old Book and the Old Faith are the Rock on which I stand!  The Old Book and the Old Faith are the bulwark of the land!  Thro’ storm and stress they stand the test, in ev’ry clime and nation blest;  The Old Book and the Old Faith are the hope of ev’ry land!

Grand Chorus at close:  Oh, the Grand Old Book and the Dear Old Faith are the Rock on which I stand!  Oh, the Grand Old Book and the Dear Old Faith are the hope of ev’ry land!

Words:  G. H. C.
