Ancient Words


(Michael W. Smith)


Holy words long preserved
For our walk in this world,
Oh let the ancient words impart
Courage, peace, a loving heart.

Words of Life, words of Hope
Give us strength, help us cope
In this world, where e'er we roam
Ancient words will guide us Home.

CHORUS:
Ancient words ever true
Changing me, and changing you.
Oh let the ancient words impart
A moving, quick incisive dart.

Holy words of our Faith
Handed down to this age.
Came to us through sacrifice
Oh heed the faithful words of Christ.

Holy words long preserved
For our walk in this world.
Courage, peace, a loving heart
Oh let the ancient words impart.

CHORUS x4
A moving, quick incisive dart
Oh let the ancient words impart.

    If I were asked to vote for a Gospel Song of the millenium, this'd be it! Surely, GOD inspired this song so we'd be constantly reminded that we NEED HIS Holy Word! Amen! I only wish I could acquire the trax for ministry in my congregation from time to time!
