Representative Text

1 God sent his voice, a mighty voice,
Thro' holy men of old,
And onward still from heart to heart.
The living echoes rolled.
His Word has guided countless feet
Along the heav'n ward way;
The Book that's stood thro' ages past,
Is just as true to-day;
The Book that's stood thro' ages past,
Is just as true to-day;

Refrain:
Just as true to-day, Hallelujah!
Just as true to-day,
The Book that's stood thro' ages past,
Is just as true to-day.

2 Unnumbered souls thro' that blest Word,
In darkness saw a light;
Unnumbered saints, in weakness, found
An overcoming might;
Of all who'ver proved its precious pow'r,
Time faileth us to say—
Elijah, Moses, David, Paul—
‘Tis just as true to-day;
Elijah, Moses, David, Paul—
‘Tis just as true to-day. [Refrain]

3 Let doubters scoff, if yet they will,
But in my hour of need,
I'll take the Book, and bowed in prayer,
A golden promise read.
I'll clasp my Bible to my breast,
And find salvation's way;
The Book that's lived thro' ages past,
Is just as true to-day;
The Book that's lived thro' ages past,
Is just as true to-day. [Refrain]
