Lyrics

A Bible Christian I will be,
For Christ has done so much for me;
Then how could I my Lord deny,
And on the words of men rely?

Refrain

The Bible’s good enough for me,
The Bible’s truth my creed shall be;
From human creeds I turn away,
I stand for Christ alone today.

Tho’ many follow human plans,
Believe the creeds set up by man;
No other creed have I today
Than Christ, who is the Truth, the Way.

Refrain

The Word by inspiration giv’n,
The chart that points the way to Heav’n;
On this I dare and will depend,
And with my life its truth defend.

Refrain

Believe in Christ, repent of sin,
Confess your faith, and peace you’ll win;
Then ’neath the water with Him go,
And you His peace and joy shall know.
