Faith of Our Fathers Misc. Gospel
Words: Frederick W. Faber Music: Henri F. Hemy FAITH OF OUR FATHERS (A) Faith of our fathers, (D) liv(E)ing (A) still, (D) In spite of (A) dungeon, (B) fire and (E) sword; (A) O how our hearts beat (D) high (E) with (A) joy (D) Whenever we (A) hear that (B) glor(E)ious (A) word! Chorus (D) Faith of our (A) fathers, (E) holy (A) faith, We will be (D) true to (Bm) thee (E) till (A) death! Our fathers, chained in prisons dark, Were still in our 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 strive To win all nations unto Thee; And through the truth that comes from God, Mankind shall then be truly free. 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
