1 I am somewhat old fashioned, I know,
When it comes to religion and God;
Many think I am painfully slow
Since I walk where my fathers have trod.
I believe in repentance from sin,
And that Jesus within us must dwell;
I believe that if heaven we win,
We must flee from the terrors of hell.
I’m a little old fashioned, I know;
But God’s peace has a home in my soul;
And I’ll praise Him wherever I go,
For cleansing and making me whole.
2 I believe that the Bible is true,
Though the critics have torn it apart,
All its warnings and miracles too,
I do wholly accept with my heart.
I believe that the Sabbath was made
To be sacredly kept for the Lord;
And when broken for pleasure or trade
We shall miss the eternal reward. [Refrain]
3 I believe our religion must be
Not a cloak for our meanness or shame,
But a power from bondage to free,
All who trust in that heavenly name.
I am telling the people each day,
That the sinner forever is lost,
Who has failed to accept the true way
Which was opened at infinite cost. [Refrain]
