God of Our Fathers
   was written by   
Daniel C. Roberts & George Warren
The occasion for the writing of God of our Fathers was the centennial of the Declaration of Independence in 1876. Daniel C. Roberts, the 35 year-old rector of St. Thomas Episcopal Church, a small rural church in Brandon, Vermont, wanted a new hymn for his congregation to celebrate the centennial. He wrote "God of Our Fathers" and his congregation sang it to the tune RUSSIAN HYMN. Warren wrote a new tune for it, NATIONAL HYMN.
