Antique Hymn Printable for Father’s Day {Faith of our Fathers}

With Father’s Day coming soon, I wanted to share this beautiful old hymn early enough that it could be used to create a gift, or card, or even used with a photo, in remembrance of a father that has passed away.  
I realize that most people haven’t had the blessing of growing up with a Godly father {if you did, I hope you are extremely thankful for that}, but we can all be grateful that men through the ages, found the Savior worth any cost they might pay, to truly live out their faith – they were a witness to their family, friends, neighbors and people they would never meet – they were spiritual “fathers” for all of us.  Looking at the lives of people like John Bunyan, the Apostles Peter & Paul, and other martyrs for Christ, put me to shame.  The walked their talk…to the point of death for many of them.  I often wonder, if put to that kind of test, would my faith prevail? Beyond wondering, I know I need to strengthen my faith, so that regardless of whether I am ever put to a test, others could look at my life and get a glimpse of the Lord.  I am no where near being a good reflection of Him.  I don’t say that in an attempt to sound humble – it’s a fact, but I am asking the Lord not to give up on me.  I want to be like him, but I am weak, and I fail more than I overcome.  Still…this is my prayer.  I want to be found true to him…til death.

Have you used one of my antique images on a project you created,?  If so, please share!  My new feature READER SUBMISSIONS will showcase you!

Blessings,

  1. Good morning Angie! Now you have me humming that song. Thanks for all these great Hymns. And I SO MUCH agree with your thoughts….. I am not worthy of the trials that ‘our fathers’ went through to keep the faith alive. I am not doing my part. 🙁
    I need to be filled with the Spirit each day, because I leak like a sieve. But one step… one step… I try to keep moving toward Him. Why is it such a struggle? whew.
