I Am Standing on the Word of God

I am standing on the Word of God,
Which came to men of old;
The Holy Book our fathers loved,
And treasured more than gold.

Refrain
I am standing, standing on the Word,
Though the earth change and decay,
It shall never, never pass away,
I am standing on the Word of God.

I am standing on the Word of God,
’Tis holy and ’tis true;
Through ages it has been our light,
With splendor ever new.

I am standing on the Word of God,
’Tis full of life divine;
God's Spirit lives in ev’ry word,
And moves in ev’ry line.

I am standing on the Word of God,
And thus I am secure;
Though blows the tempest wild and hard,
’Twill evermore endure.

I am standing on the Word of God,
And on my dying bed
I’ll share its consolations, Lord,
When death's dark vale I tread.

—E. M. Wadsworth

There is one sure and infalliable guide to truth, and therefore, one and only one corrective for error, and that is the Word of God. G. Campbell Morgan
