1 ’Mid the storms of doubt and unbelief, we fear,
Stands a Book eternal that the saints hold 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
Are the Rock on which I stand!
The old Book and the old Faith
Are 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
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! [Chorus]

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 every foe! [Chorus]

4. ’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]

Grand Chorus at Close (May be omitted):
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!
