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!
Faith of our fathers, holy faith!
We will be true to thee till death!
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. (Refrain)
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: (Refrain)
