Loc: in my own world in pittsburgh,...
This hymn text was written to commemorate the 150th anniversary celebration of the church I work for. We kick off a year of celebration this Sunday [6-15] and close the year in october 2004. This hymn is the theme of the year. It seems to resonate with what is happening here in these forums.


Faith Flowing Through Us

text copyright 2003 by Ron S [with inspiration from Bill Mc]

(Sung to the Hymn tune St Catherine Faith of Our Fathers , but in 4 meter with anticipated syncopation)


1. Faith Flowing Through Us, faith of old
Guiding our footsteps day by day.
Leading us into paths of light,
Being our hope, our food and stay.


Refrain
Faith Flowing Through Us,  holy faith:
Woven as thread through all our days


2. Faith Flowing Through Us,  through the years
Threatened in loss of love and life,
Tested in time of flood and fire,
Ever undimmed in toil and strife.

Refrain
Faith Flowing Through Us,  holy faith:
Woven as thread through all our days

3. Faith Flowing Through Us, age to age
Martyrs and saints extolled your might.
Preaching both near and far, of Him
Who is the Way, the Truth and Life.

Refrain
Faith Flowing Through Us,  holy faith:
Woven as thread through all our days

4. Faith Flowing Through Us, women, men
Each generation makes the next
Nurturing, teaching, forming faith
Spreading the Word as love knows best.

Refrain
Faith Flowing Through Us,  holy faith:
Woven as thread through all our days

5. Faith Flowing Through Us, old and young
Bonded by love in Christ the Lord.
Sharing the journey arm in arm,
Bearing the kingdom to the world.

Refrain
Faith Flowing Through Us,  holy faith:
We will be true to you, ‘til death.

Ron:

Thank you. What marvelous lyrics! Have you had these published, like in a hymnal? If not you should! I sure would like to hear it, tho I do know the general tune.

Please keep writing & composing & playing. The church needs some fresh new hymns with lyrics that
are relevant & inviting for people today!
