Faith of our fathers living still In




Faith of our fathers! living still
In spite of dungeon, fire and sword:
O how our hearts beat high with joy
Whenever we hear that glorious word!

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



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.

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



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.

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



Faith of our fathers! God's great pow'r
Shall draw all nations unto thee;
And through the truth that comes from God
His people shall indeed be free:

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



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.

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