The Bible Stands

Somehow I had missed a day completely... Hymn for Tuesday

We first sang this song in our church at our Bible conference about 1 1/2 years ago, and it has since become one of our favourites. It certainly has an excellent message! This is one where our hymnal has every stanza, so that is a blessing to me.

The Bible Stands
(Words and Music: Haldor Lillenas)

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.

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.

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.

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.

  1. Thanks for posting the words to "The Bible Stands." It's a hymn that ought to be sung far more than it is. And today is the 50th anniversary of the death of the hymn writer, Haldor Lillenas. To find out more, you're invited to check out my blog, Wordwise Hymns. God bless.
