……..BAHHHAHAHA! I’m sorry….I couldn’t help but laugh. Not to be mean or anything.
But wow….I feel like he was singing to a 3 year old! Oh wait…I think that’s the point…
The B.I.B.L.E…… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ltn0AT-7Of8&feature=player_embedded
Worth even more of a chuckle!
Awesome! He sang “I stand alone….on the word of God, the B I B L E….”
I learned it as a kid this way: I stand upon, the word of God, the B I B L E…”
He added two beats and a weird ass chord to be even more separated.
I’d always sung the alone version, which I believe to be a sola scriptura assertion, not a seperation one, but there probably are fundies who prefer the idea of being individually seperated from even their own church members! 😉
Interesting! Yes, I always sang “I stand along on the Word of God”, but I too never thought of it as separation but rather that my faith is based ONLY on God’s Word.
OK, it kind of ruins my point when I type “along” instead of “alone.”
sola scriptura: “I stand upon the word alone, the B I B L E!”
I’m with PW and RM and I probably predate you all so THAT’S THE WAY IT IS!!! In a kind and loving way…
I remember this one! Sang it often. A fun song.
Variation: the last “bubbling” in the song was repeated as many times as possible without taking a breath…..
“Its bubbling, bubbling, bubbling, bubbling, bubbling, bubbling, bubbling, bubbling, bubbling, bubbling, bubbling, bubbling, bubbling, bubbling, bubbling, bubbling, bubbling, bubbling, bubbling day and night”.
happy, happy, joy, joy 😉
I wonder if this singer is trying to archive it for the Smithsonian or great-grandkids-to-be.
Careful, that bubbling could be lunch-related.
He has obviously attended the Pastor Steven Anderson video school of guitar playing… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cHWzZz8HsEs
Another staple of my childhood — though those that taught it to me would consider the guitar evil. 😉
Thanks for the good memory.
You know, I had to admit–after watching this video several times and checking out his YouTube channel… I dig the old guy.
He does grow on you. 🙂
I learned this song when I started teaching a Fundy Sunday school with a friend of mine. I was SO confused by the lyrics, as I assume the kids were, too, if they ever though about them. I think we sang it just because the kids liked to say “bubbling.” “Miss Jenni, can we sing the ‘bubbly bubbly’ song?”
Funny, but I learned this song at a decidedly-non-IFB church’s VBS. It was a Charismatic church and it was a little more “upbeat” probably. I failed to understand what on earth it meant and would usually sing it with a cohort:
It’s a nibblin’
It’s a nibblin’
It’s a nibblin’ at my soul
LOL, the pix on the mantlepiece behind him are by the late Carl Bloch, a well-known Catholic artist. Looks like they came straight out of my old Confraternity of Christian Doctrine B-I-B-L-E. My grade-school nuns would be proud.
