Faith of Our Fathers

[ capo 3 ] 

DFaith of our Dfa/Emth/F#mers, GliAving Dstill,

GIn spite of Ddun/F#mgeon, Gfire and Asword;

DO how our Dhea/Emrts /F#mbeat Ghigh Awith Djoy

GWhenever we Dhear that Em7gloriAous DWord!


GFaith of our Dfathers, Aholy Dfaith!

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.

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.
