The Old Fashioned Way
Written by Mrs. C. D. Martin Music by W. Stillman 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.
Chorus :.. 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,
Thro' the blood that makes whiter than snow.
Vs.2:.. Old fashioned, because I believe and accept
Only what has been spoken from heav'n;
Old fashioned because at the cross I was saved,
At the cross had my sins forgiv'n.
Vs.3:.. 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.
Vs.4:.. Old fashioned, because I am looking above
To Jesus, my glorified Lord;
Because I believe He is coming again,
Fulfilling His holy Word.
