Lift our hearts, Lord, with their story -
Those who lived by faith before;
How they trusted in your glory,
How they heard and what they saw.
God in Christ was their foundation;
You were theirs as You are ours,
Faith in every generation
Sings its songs and prays its prayers.

Once they worshipped in the dullness
Of a world untouched by science;
Still they served you in the fullness
Of the gospel's brave defiance.
You their guide – as still you guide us
You their gift – and still you give;
Hope and peace lodged deep inside us;
Through each trial the strength to live.

Verses 3-4 follow

Michael Docker
Tune: Abbot's Leigh 8787 D
