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
