The Old-fashioned Way
Words by Civilla D. Martin
Music by W. Stillman Martin

Psalm 51:7
"... wash me and I shall be whiter than snow."

divider

          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,
            Thru the blood that makes whiter than snow.

          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 I had my sins forgiv'n.

            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,
            Thru the blood that makes whiter than snow.

          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.

            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,
            Thru the blood that makes whiter than snow.

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

            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,
            Thru the blood that makes whiter than snow.
