Representative Text

1 Hold fast to the old fashioned Gospel,
“New tho’t” may be well in its way,
But give me the dear Holy Bible,
A guide that will ne’er lead astray.

Refrain:
Hold fast, hold fast,
The Word of our God tried and true,
Hold fast to the old fashioned Gospel,
Whose pages will ever be new.

2 The Word that our fathers have cherished
Whose precepts brought comfort and cheer,
The Gospel that living or dying,
Brings God and His heaven so near. [Refrain]

3 Hold fast to the old fashioned Gospel,
Thro’ ages it still is the same,
A message of perfect salvation,
To all how believe in His name. [Refrain]

Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
