Faith of our fathers, living still

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
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!
3
Faith of our fathers, we will strive
To win all nations unto thee;
And through the truth that comes from God
Mankind shall then indeed be free.
Faith of our fathers! holy faith!
We will be true to thee till death!
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 words and virtuous life.
Faith of our fathers! holy faith!
We will be true to thee till death!

I was surprised that this is a Catholic hymn. We sang it in the Methodist Episcopal church when I was a child, and in the Lutheran Church as well. When the congregations sang this hymn we sang all verses and very loudly. It is obviously a generally loved hymn. It speaks to us all.

Great song. Inspiring Faith, commitment and dedication. I cherish this song so much. It evokes an aura/ atmosphere of the reality of Christian sacrifice for me and makes me shed tears inwardly. Thank you Father God for your grace to stand firm till the end. Hallellujah.
