PLEASE NOTE - ONLY THE CHORUS IS IN OUR HYMNAL

          The Bible stands like a rock undaunted
          'Mid the raging storms of time;
          Its pages burn with the truth eternal,
          And they glow with a light sublime.

            Chorus
            The Bible stands though the hills may tumble,
            It will firmly stand when the earth shall crumble;
            I will plant my feet on its firm foundation,
            For the Bible stands.

          The Bible stands like a mountain towering
          Far above the works of men;
          Its truth by none ever was refuted,
          And destroy it they never can.

            Chorus
            The Bible stands though the hills may tumble,
            It will firmly stand when the earth shall crumble;
            I will plant my feet on its firm foundation,
            For the Bible stands.

          The Bible stands and it will forever,
          When the world has passed away;
          By inspiration it has been given,
          All its precepts I will obey.

            Chorus
            The Bible stands though the hills may tumble,
            It will firmly stand when the earth shall crumble;
            I will plant my feet on its firm foundation,
            For the Bible stands.

          The Bible stands every test we give it,
          For its Author is divine;
          By grace alone I expect to live it,
          And to prove and to make it mine.

            Chorus
            The Bible stands though the hills may tumble,
            It will firmly stand when the earth shall crumble;
            I will plant my feet on its firm foundation,
            For the Bible stands.
