There it stands, like a mighty rock
In the midst of a raging sea;
The Bible stands, though men may mock
And attack it vehemently!
Why do men mock and hate it so?
This Book of eternal salvation!
Could it be that the wicked men know
It warns of their condemnation?
They have burned it, and spurned it,
And explained it away;
They have denied and spiritualized it,
But the Book is here to stay!
And though wicked men like Jehoiakim,
May take their penknives and whittle,
The Bible will not be expired by them,
Not even one jot or tittle!
For should they destroy it from earth,
This Book which God has given;
'Tis settled forever from the first,
And has been preserved in heaven!
They shall be judged by this Holy Word,
All whose sin have not been atoned,
When they meet a thrice-Holy God
At the great white judgment throne!
