1 Faith of our fathers! living still
in spite of dungeon, fire, and sword;
oh, how our hearts beat high with joy
whene’er we hear that glorious word!

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

2 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!

3 Faith of our fathers, we will strive
to win our neighbors unto thee;
and through the truth that comes from God,
believing, they shall then be free.

4 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 word and virtuous life.
