Faith of Our Fathers

Hymn Writer ~ Frederick W. Faber

Hymn Music ~ Henri F. Hemy

Stanza 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!

Refrain :

Faith of our fathers, holy faith!

We will be true to thee till death.

Stanza 2:

Faith of our fathers, we will strive

to win all nations unto thee;

and through the truth that comes from God,

we all shall then be truly free.


Stanza 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.
