“Faith of Our Fathers”

Faith of our fa-thers! Liv-ing still  In spite of dun-geon

fire and sword;  O how our hearts beat high with joy

When-e`er we hear that glo-rious word!  Faith of our

Fa-thers holy faith!  We will be true to thee till death!


Faith of our fa-thers! we will love  Both friend and foe

in all our strife;  And preach thee too as love knows how,

By kind-ly words and vir-tuous life; Faith of our fa-thers

Ho-ly faith!  We will be true to thee till death!



“Wonderful Words of Life”

Sing them over again to me, Won-der-ful words of life; Let me more

of their beauty see, Won-der-ful works of Life.  Words of Life

and beau-ty, Teach me faith and du-ty. Refrain


Sweet-ly echo the gospel call, Won-der-ful words of Life; Offer

Par-don and peace to all, Won-der-ful words of Life.  Je-sus,

 on-ly Savior, Sanc-ti-fy for-ever. Refrain:


Refrain: Beau-ti-ful words, won-der-ful words, Won-der-ful words of Life.  Beau-ti-ful words, won-der-ful words, won-der-ful words of Life.



“Open Our Eyes, Lord”

O-pen our eyes, Lord, we want to see Je-sus, to reach out

and touch Him, and say that we love Him.


O-pen ours ears, Lord, and help us to lis-ten, O-pen our eyes,

Lord, we want to see Jesus.
