#183: Faith of Our Fathers

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

Faith of our fathers, living still

In spite of dungeon, fire and sword —

O how our hearts beat high with joy

Whene’er we hear that glorious word!

CHORUS

Faith of our fathers, holy faith,

We will be true to thee till death!

2

Our fathers, chained in prisons dark

Were still in heart and conscience free;

How sweet would be their children’s fate

If they, like them, could die for thee!

CHORUS

3

Faith of our fathers, we will love

Both friend and foe in all our strife;

And preach thee too, as love knows how,

By kindly words and virtuous life.

CHORUS
