Faith of our Fathers

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:

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;
And blest would be their children's fate
If they, like them, should die for thee:

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 witness true and virtuous life:

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

when i used to teach the chrsitian school , they had a lovely graduation ceremony where they had the parents light candles that the graduating students held while the chorus sang this song.

That sounds so moving. . .

I posted this today because we wanted to sing it during family worship, and we just couldn't get the tune right. *blush* I'm not musical at all, but I can hardly think of anything I love more than singing hymns with my boys.
