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

2.	Faith of our fathers, we will strive 
	to win all nations unto thee; 
	and through the truth that comes from God, 
	we all shall then be truly 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)
