The Old-Fashioned Way

For whosoever shall call 
upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
- Romans 10:13 -

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.

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.

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.
- Mrs. C. D. Martin -

Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean:
wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
- Psalm 51:7 -

Have a blessed Lord's Day, precious friends!

That's me, old fashioned and I am truly blessed! We don't sing this one too much anymore but it has some wonderful reminders in it. Thanks Stephanie, for sharing this one!

Call me old-fashioned, but I believe in watching the heart and guarding it; these days too much is said and done without thinking, and one thinks that is "the modern way" but humans can so easily be deceived. Goodness, kindness, love, respect, joy....those things are NEVER old-fashioned!

I am old-fashioned, too, in all the same ways! Now I mist find this melody...I am unfamiliar with the song.
