528. Faith of Our Mothers, Living Still

1 Faith of our Mothers, living still,
In cradle song and bedtime prayer.
In nursery love and fireside lore,
Thy presence still pervades the air:

Refrain:
Faith of our Mothers, living faith,
We will be true to thee till death.

2 Faith of our Mothers, loving faith,
The fount of childhood's trust and grace,
O, may thy consecration prove
The well-spring of a nobler race; [Refrain]

3 Faith of our Mothers, guiding faith,
For youthful longing– youthful doubt,
How blurred our vision, blind our way
Thy providential care without; [Refrain]

4 Faith of our Mothers, Christian faith,
In truth beyond our man-made creeds,
Still serve the home and save the church,
And breathe thy spirit thro' our deeds;
[Refrain]

AMEN.
