THE BIBLE STANDS

VERSE 1:
G                       C
The Bible stands like a rock undaunted
        G                D
Mid the raging storms of time;
    G                   C
Its pages burn with the truth eternal,
         G           D7        G
And they glow with a light sub-lime.

CHORUS:
G                       D
The Bible stands though hills may tumble,
        D7                    G
It will firmly stand when the earth shall crumble;
                            C
I will plant my feet on its firm foundation,
        G  D   G
For the Bi-ble stands.

VERSE 2:
The Bible stands like a mountain towering 
Far above the works of men; 
Its truth by none ever was refuted, 
And destroy it they never can. 

VERSE 3:
The Bible stands and it will forever, 
When the world has passed away; 
By inspiration it has been given, 
All its precepts I will obey.

VERSE 4:
The Bible stands every test we give it, 
For its Author is divine; 
By grace alone I expect to live it, 
And to prove and make it mine.
