   Faith of Our Fathers
   Words: Frederick W. Faber
   Tune: Frederick W. Faber


G                    Am  D   G        
FAITH OF OUR FATHERS LIV-ING STILL

C           G       A        D
IN SPITE OF DUNGEON FIRE AND SWORD

G                      Am   D    G
OH HOW OUR HEARTS BEAT HIGH WITH JOY

C            G        D        G
WHEN-E’ER WE HEAR THE GLORIOUS WORD
                        

Chorus
C            G       D    G
FAITH OF OUR FATHERS HOLY FAITH
G          C       D         G
WE WILL BE TRUE TO THEE TILL DEATH



G                      Am  D   G
THE MARTYRS CHAINED IN PRI-SON DARK

C             G         A          D
WERE STILL IN HEART AND CONSCIENCE FREE

G                        Am   D      G
AND BLEST WOULD BE THEIR CHIL-DREN’S FATE

C            G            D       G 
IF THEY LIKE THEM, SHOULD DIE FOR THEE



Chorus


G                     Am D    G 
FAITH OF OUR FATHERS! WE WILL LOVE

C               G      A       D
BOTH FRIEND AND FOE IN ALL OUR STRIFE

G                     Am   D     G
PROCLAIM THEE TOO, AS LOVE KNOWS HOW

C         G        D        G 
BY SAVING WORD AND FAITHFUL LIFE


Chorus
