Christmas Song Lyrics
Compiled by Charles P. Scott

Faith of Our Fathers

Performed by Bing Crosby
Faith of our fathers, living still
In spite of dungeon, fire, and sword
Oh, 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

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.

About This Song
Writing hymns was the life's work and mission of Fredrick W. Faber. The American heros who went before us had great faith in almighty God. Let us be reminded that many of them paid inordinate, personal prices as they preserved their Christian heritage and traditions.

The Faith of Our Fathers, referred to in this hymn, is their abundant trust in a loving, heavenly father. They had learned about him in the scriptures - lessons that presently guide our feet each day and which make it easier to fall asleep at night.

Writing hymns was the life's work and mission of Fredrick W. Faber. He wrote songs that he thought would be helpful to his fellow Christians. He wrote approximately 150 such hymns before his death. In the opinion of this writer, his crowning achievement was "Faith of Our Fathers."
