Our Fathers Faith

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The rains of Anfield
Can never erase
Her glorious deeds
Her glorious days

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The stars in the sky
All dip down low
To find a space
To watch the show

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 They sing the songs
They cheer each goal
And love the reds
With heart and soul

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 We pray that Justice
Finds the truth
And peace at last
May then shine through

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Tho football is
Our daily bread
It’s not more important
Than life, or death

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 The Anfield Shrine
Gives light to those
Who stand beside
And don’t lose hope

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 For home is where
Your heart will rest
And where your treasure
Should be kept

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 It’s not in bricks
That Anfield belongs
But in our hearts
And in our songs

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 We don the colours
We’ll never change
Our Fathers faith
With us remains.
