#174: The Old Book and the Old Faith

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

‘Mid the storms of doubt and unbelief we fear,

Stands a Book eternal that the world holds dear;

Thru the restless ages it remains the same–

‘Tis the Book of God, and the Bible is its name!

CHORUS

 The old Book and the old Faith (The grand old Book and the dear old Faith) Are the Rock on which I stand! (on which I stand!)

The old Book and the old Faith (The grand old Book and the dear old Faith) Ar the bulwark of the land!

Thru storm and stress they stand the test, In ev’ry clime and nation blest;

The old Book and the old Faith (The grand old Book and the dear old Faith) Are the hope of ev’ry land!

2

‘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 thru His blood we are saved from ev’ry sin!

3

‘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,

Thru whom strength is given to conquer ev’ry foe!

CHORUS

4

‘Tis the Book that tells us of eternal life,

After faithful service in a world of strife;

And this glorious triumphh over death’s dark fears

Is the world’s best gift in an age of countless tears!

CHORUS

GRAND CLOSE

O the grand old Book and the dear old Faith Are the Rock on which I stand!

O the grand old Book and the dear old Faith Are the hope of ev’ry land!
