The Old Fashioned Way
WORDS by Mrs. C. D. Martin

They call me old fashioned because I believe
	That the Bible is God’s holy Word,
That Jesus, who lived among men long ago,
	Is divine, and the Christ of God.

My sin was old fashioned, My guilt was old fashioned,
	God’s love was old fashioned, I know;
And the way I was saved was the old fashioned way,
	Through the blood that makes whiter than snow.

Old fashioned, because I believe and accept
	Only what has been spoken from Heaven;
Old fashioned because at the cross I was saved,
	At the cross had my sins forgiven.

Old fashioned, because I am bound to do right,
	To walk in the straight narrow way;
Because I have given my whole life to God,
	Old fashioned, because I pray.

Old fashioned, because I am looking above
	To Jesus, my glorified Lord;
Because I believe He is coming again,
	Fulfilling His holy Word. 

He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life. These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life [1st John 5:12, 13 - NASB].
