Faith of Our Fathers

      Faith of Our Fathers (9/16/2011)

Words:  Frederick W. Faber
Music:   Henri F. Hemy

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

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

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

Faith of our fathers, holy faith!
We will be true to Thee till death!
