This one is just too obvious for a Lutheran not to share on Reformation weekend! Not to mention that the lyrics are just great. They’re truth. They’re power. They invigorate me (especially when they’re sung in the original rhythm…but that’s for another post). I’ve only included the 4th verse–I encourage you to look up the whole thing though, as that’s the best way. :)
That Word above all earthly powers, no thanks to them, abideth;
The Spirit and the gifts are ours, through Him who with us sideth.
Let goods and kindred go, this mortal life also!
The body they may kill; God’s truth abideth still!
His Kingdom is forever.
