Holy words long preserved
For our walk in this world
They resound with God's own heart
O let the ancient words impart

Give us strength help us cope
In this world where'er we roam

Changing me changing you
We have come with open hearts
O let the ancient words impart

Holy words of our faith
Handed down to this age

O heed the faithful words of Christ

Martyr's blood stains each page
They have died for this faith
Hear them cry through the years
Heed these words and hold them dear
