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 God's glorious Word:

Refrain:
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;
and blest would be their children's fate
if they, like them, should die for thee: [Refrain]

3 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: [Refrain]

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 witness true and virtuous life: [Refrain]
