1. 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.
Refrain: 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.
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.
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.
4. Old-fashioned, because I am looking above To Jesus, my glorified Lord; Because I believe He is coming again, Fulfilling His holy Word.
