A Living Faith

Faith of our fathers, living still
In spite of dungeon, fire, and sword:
O how our hearts beat high with joy,
Whenever we hear that glorious word:
Faith of our fathers, holy faith
We will be true to thee till death.

 Faith of our mothers, daring faith,
your work for Christ is love revealed
Spreading God’s word from pole to pole,
making love known and freedom real:
Faith of our mothers holy faith,
we will be true to the till death.

 Faith of our brothers, sisters too,
Who still must bear oppression’s might
Raising on high in prisons dark,
The cross of Christ still burning bright:
Faith for today, o living faith,
we will be true to thee till death.

 Faith born of God, o call us yet
Bind us with all who follow thee,
sharing the struggle of thy cross
Until the world is truly free.
Faith born of God, o living faith,
We will be true to thee till death.
