God of Our Fathers - Composed By George W. Warren (1836-1903)
Lyrics by Daniel C. Roberts (1842-1907) - Arranged for Brass Quintet By Dean W. Smith.
In 1892, Daniel C. Roberts sent the hymn anonymously to the General Convention of the Episcopal Church to be considered by a group tasked with revising the Episcopal hymnal. If the group accepted his hymn, Roberts said he would send them his name. The commission approved it. The hymnal editor and organist George W. Warren were to choose a hymn for the celebration of the Centennial of the United States Constitution. They chose Roberts' lyrics, which were originally sung to a tune called "Russian Hymn." Warren wrote a new tune called "National Hymn", which is also called "God of Our Fathers", and is synonymous with the celebration of 4th of July in the States.
