Give Me That Old Fashioned Way


It was an old fashioned Savior of men
Who left His beautiful home in the sky (left His home in glory)
Came to redeem us from bondage of sin
Yes came so freely to suffer and die (what a matchless story)
It was an old fashioned love in His heart
For us that brought to us such pain and loss (when He there was dying)
Joy and salvation He came to impart (to sinners)
There on that old fashioned cross (the old cross)

Lord give me more of the old fashioned way (give me more of the old fashioned
way)
That I may live and rejoice every day (live rejoicing all of the day)
A love that ever will shine, bring joy to this heart of mine
That I might send forth a cheerful bright ray (a bright ray)
Lord give me more of the old fashioned way (give me more of the old fashioned
way)
That I may live and rejoice every day (live rejoicing all of the day)
A love that ever will shine, bring joy to this heart of mine
Lord give me more of the old fashioned way (the old way)

It was an old fashioned prayer Jesus prayed
Out in the Garden of Gethsemane (how we ought to love him)
All of our sorrows upon Him were laid
Oh what a wonderful Savior is He (there is none above Him)
It was an old fashioned love so divine
When He said, “Not my will but thine be done” (so willing to suffer)
I am so glad that His pardon is mine (I love Him)
Jesus the crucified One (the blest one)
