1. The Bible stands like a rock undaunted ’Mid the raging storms of time; Its pages burn with the truth eternal, And they glow with a light sublime.
Refrain: The Bible stands though hills may tumble, It will firmly stand when the earth shall crumble; I will plant my feet on its firm foundation, For the Bible stands.
2. The Bible stands like a mountain tow’ring Far above the works of men; Its truth by none ever was refuted, And destroy it they never can.
3. The Bible stands and it will forever, When the world has passed away; By inspiration it has been given, All its precepts I will obey.
4. The Bible stands ev’ry test we give it, For its Author is divine; By grace alone I expect to live it, And to prove and to make it mine.
