Biography

From their very first public performance at Dr. Charles Stanley's First Baptist Church Atlanta, Old Fashion Faithful has gained noteriety as one of the best ministries in contemporary southern gospel music today.

Comprised of Deborah Foster on lead and harmony vocals, Theresa Sroufe on lead and harmony vocals, Debbie Miller on keyboards and harmony vocals and Vickie Leach on upright accoustic bass and harmony vocals, this all female quartet is uniquely original in quality, style, song repertoir and stage presentation.

Old Fashion Faithful's first album, Little is Much, produced by Emmy Award winning television composer Keith Evans, was acquired by The Eddie Crook Company's Morning Star Records label only three weeks after its completion. The quartet's songs have since been playing on gospel radio stations across the country. Their second album, Company's Comin', features instrumentation by founding members of multi-Dove and Grammy Award winning contemporary Christian group Petra and is slated for release in 2008.

In addition to making several appearances on local to internationally broadcast Christian radio and television programs, Old Fashion Faithful has also been featured in The Singing News magazine, on The Singing News website, in The Singing News Sourcebook, in the collector's edition first issue of the national County Fairgrounds USA! magazine, on the County Fairgrounds USA! website and on the front page of the Atlanta Christian Magazine's website.

Recent endorsement of Old Fashion Faithful by Nashville's CMP (Christian Music Presenters), the pretigious Music Row organization which provides gospel entertainment for such venues as The White House, Carnegie Hall and The National Parks, has further cemented their status as world class gospel artists.

Lyrics

Old Fashion Faithful

Written By: Theresa Sroufe

Stars up in the heavens
shine with majesty.
All the mighty oceans
tides roll endlessly.
Summer warmth, autumn leaves,
winter snow and sprintime breeze.
Made to last forever.
Old fashion faithful He will be.

Surely as the seasons
and sunrise each new day,
twilight dances with the moon.
It's always been this way.
King of glory, creator God,
Father in heaven is He.
Forever, eternally,
old fashion faithful He will be.

Old fashion faithful.
Creation's symphony.
Old fashion faithful.
He speaks and it shall be.
By His Son it all has come
into reality.
Old fashion faithful is His Word
for all time, eternally.

Storms may rise
and winds may blow,
but faithful is
our God's control.

Old fashion faithful.
Creation's symphony.
Old fashion faithful,
He speaks and it shall be.
By His Son it all has come
into reality.
Old fashion faithful is His Word
for all time eternally.
All creation's symphony
sings His praise in harmony.

When I Passed By

Written By: Theresa Sroufe

Eziekiel tells your story,
you were an orphaned baby girl.
Discarded, naked and unclean,
the trash heap was your world.
You struggled
in your hopelessness,
none caring if you died.
Then I passed by
and gave to you my life.

When I passed by again
your beauty caught my eye.
Clothed in linen
and royal jewels.
Adorned, perfumed, refined.
From the moment I appeared
all things were made right.
Now I ask you to reach the lost
with mercy, truth and life.

When I passed by
I said live
and breath new life.
When I passed by
I turned your darkness
into light.
And changed you
into someone
who was beautiful
and bright
when I passed by.

When you pass by
you will speak life and edify.
When you pass by
you'll be my church
and lift me high.
My spirit coming from you
is a river of new life.
When you pass by
be the world's light,
when you pass by.

Focus On The Bible

Written By: Theresa Sroufe

I have a river
of life flowing out of me.
Its holy purpose
is to cleanse and set men free!

This living water
comes from the Father's throne
brought to earth by Jesus Christ
to announce we are His own!

Focus on the Bible!
It's God's most holy word
written to the people of God
so His love could be understood.

I am what it says I am.
I have what it says I can have.
I can do what it says I can do
in Christ Jesus!
In Christ Jesus!

Be diligent
to present yourself
approved to God.
A worker who is not ashamed.
Rightly dividing the Word of Truth!
The Word of Truth!

I have a river
of life flowing out of me.
It's holy purpose
is to cleanse and set men free!

This living water
comes from the Father's throne
brought to earth by Jesus Christ
to announce we are His own!

Focus on the Bible!
Its God's most holy word
written to the people of God
so His love could be understood.

I am what it says that I am.
I have what it says I can have.
I can do what it says I can do
in Christ Jesus!
In Christ Jesus!

Focus on the Bible!
Focus on the Bible!
Focus on the Bible!

Breakthrough

Written By: Theresa Sroufe

I hear the sound
of a breakthrough coming.
I hear the sound
of a glorious day.
I hear the sound
of freedom calling.
The sky has opened
with abundance of rain.

Breakthrough! I hear it coming!
Breakthrough! It's freedom time.
Breakthrough! I'm overflowing.
Breakthrough! I'm next in line.

I hear the windows
of the heavens open!
Showers of blessings
pouring from from on high!
He is the faithful God
and He has promised
blessings overflowing. Breakthrough time!

Breakthrough! I hear it coming.
Breakthrough! I hear it coming!
Breakthrough! I'm overflowing!
breakthrough! I'm next in line!

Jesus Loosed Me

Written By: Theresa Sroufe

Jesus loosed me
and He set me free!
Jesus Loosed me
and brought me liberty!
I'm no longer bound
in sin and misery!
Jesus loosed me
and He set me free!

Once I was lost
and dead in my sin.
I didn't know why
there was darkness within.
Then Jesus came
and He entered my heart.
Now I see the light
with a new life to start.

Jesus loosed me
and He set me free!
Jesus loosed me
and brought me liberty!
I'm no longer bound
in sin and misery!
Jesus loosed me
and He set me free!

When Lazerus died
and was laid in his tomb,
his family cried out
in sorrow consumed.
Then Jesus said,
"Lazerus come forth!
Loose him, let him go"
commanded the Lord.

Jesus loosed me
and He set me free!
Jesus loosed me
and brought me liberty!
I'm no longer bound
in sin and misery!
Jesus loosed me
and He set me free!

Don't be entangled
by your past sinful life,
bound up in grave clothes
apart from God's light.
Let Jesus loose you
from worry and strife
and follow the Lord
with all of your might!

Jesus loosed me
and He set me free!
Jesus loosed me
and brought me liberty!
I'm no longer bound
in sin and misery!
Jesus loosed me
and He set me free!

Jesus loosed me
and He set me free!

Then I Will Hear

Written By: Theresa Sroufe

If my people
who are called by my name
shall humble themselves
and pray.

If my people
who are called by my name
shall seek my face
and turn
from their wicked ways.

Then I will hear from heaven
and will forgive their sin.
Then I will hear from heaven
and I will heal their land.

Now my eyes will be open
and my ears quick to hear
the prayers offered in this place
for I have chosen you
and set apart this house
that my name be here forevermore.

Forevermore.
My eyes, my heart forevermore.

If my people
who are called by my name
shall seek my face
and turn from their wicked ways.

Then I will hear from heaven
and will forgive their sin.
Then i will hear from heaven
and I will heal their land.

Then I will hear from heaven
and will forgive their sin.
Then I will hear from heaven
and I will heal their land.
