530. Faith of Our Fathers

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 mothers, we will love
both friend and foe in all our strife,
and preach it, too, as love knows how,
by kindly words and virtuous life!
Faith of our mothers, holy faith,
we will be true to thee till death.

3 Faith of the martyrs who, though bound,
were still in heart and conscience ture.
How blest would be their children's fate,
if they, like them, should live for you!
Faith of the martyrs, holy faith,
we will be true to you till death.
