Hymn Story: Faith of Our Mothers
I am so thankful to have a mother who loves Jesus and taught me about him from a young age.
Faith of our Mother’s was written for Mother’s Day around 1920. The hymn was written by Rev. Arthur B. Patten and modelled after the popular and well known 19th Century hymn, Faith of Our Fathers.
The hymn expresses a genuine thanksgiving for having mother’s who pass down their faith.
The poem was put to the tune of St. Catherine, which was arranged by James G. Walton in the Crown of Jesus Music by Henri F. Hemy, which was written in 1864.
