Representative Text

1 In these days of change and turmoil,
There is much to lead astray;
But the faith of our forefathers,
Is the faith that saves today.

Refrain:
Yes, the old faith is good enough for me,
For it leads me to the cross of Calvary;
Then away to heights above,
I am borne on wings of love,
Yes, the old faith is good enough for me.

2 There are forms and doctrines many,
But in this they should agree;
That the hope of sins forgiven
Is in Christ of Calvary. [Refrain]

3 I am standing on the promise
That has stood for ages past;
And the faith that keeps me steady,
Shall the storms of doubt outlast. [Refrain]
