Faith of Our Fathers, Living Still 177
(ST. CATHERINE. L. M. With Refrain)
Frederick W. Faber, 1849 Henry F. Hemy and J. G. Walton, 1874
 

1.Faith of our fathers, living still
In spite of dungeon, fire and sword,
O How our heart beat high with joy
Whene'er we hear that glorious word!
Refrain
Faith of our fathers, holy faith,
We will be true to thee till death. (Last verse: Amen.)
2.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.
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
