Ancient Words


Ancient Words
Songwriters
Ronnie C. Freeman Jr. / Tony W. Wood

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

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
We have come with open hearts
Oh, let the ancient words impart

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
They resound with God's own heart
Oh let the ancient words impart

Chorus
Ancient words ever true
Changing me and changing you
We have come with open hearts
Oh, let the ancient words impart

I am most familiar with the Michael W. Smith version of Ancient Words, but also found this beautiful performance:

This is one of my favorite songs. My granddaughter, Alana (Lulu), sand this to open a concert for Danny Gokey to a packed house. That "old" song coming from an 11 year old had tears in everyone's eyes. xo Diana

This is a new hymn for me, but the words are powerful! What a special way for me to begin my Monday morning. Thank you!
