The Old Book and the Old Faith

D
’Mid the storms of doubt and unbelief we fear,
              Bm               A      E    A 
Stands a Book eternal that the saints hold dear;
D                                        Bm
Through the restless ages it remains the same
         A                    E7           A7
’Tis the Book of God, and the Bible is its name!

Chorus:
    D   A7           D
The old Book and the old faith
                Em7   A D
Are the Rock on which I stand!
        A7           D
The old Book and the old faith
        A       E7     A 
Are the bulwark of the land!
A7       D                     Bm
Through storms and stress they stand the test
   E               A
In every clime and nation blessed;
    D   A            Bm  G
The old Book and the old faith
        D       E7 A7  D
Are the hope of every land!


’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 through His blood we are saved from every sin!

Chorus

’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,
Through Whom strength is given to conquer every foe!

Chorus

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 every land!

Chorus
