Martin Luther is well-known as the โ€œFather of Reformationโ€ or the central figure of Protestant Reformation when he nailed his โ€™95 Thesesโ€™ in a Catholic Church door in 1517. But aside for being a German professor of theology, political leader, preacher, and author, he was also a passionate musician as he grew up in his motherโ€™s voice, became a member of wedding or funeral boysโ€™ choir, and developed his proficiency in playing a flute in Thuringian village. 

 

Luther embodied the strong will to revive worship to the German Church, when the Reformation happened, where he collaborated with several expert musicians and created notable hymns we often listen and sing with. Though he got a number of criticisms as he adapted some melodies of secular songs, ๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐—ผ๐—น๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐˜„๐—ถ๐˜๐—ต ๐˜€๐˜‚๐—ฐ๐—ต ๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—บ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐˜๐—ผ ๐—ฒ๐˜…๐—ฝ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜€ ๐—ต๐—ถ๐˜€ ๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ต ๐—ฒ๐—บ๐—ผ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป๐˜€ ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐—ณ๐—ฎ๐—ถ๐˜๐—ต ๐˜„๐—ถ๐˜๐—ต ๐—š๐—ผ๐—ฑ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ด๐—ต ๐—บ๐˜‚๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ฐ. Indubitably, thatโ€™s when he released his most famous hymn โ€œEinโ€™ feste Burg ist unser Gottโ€ (โ€œA Mighty fortress is Our Godโ€) reflecting Lutherโ€™s compliance to God in Psalms 46 whenever he experience Satanโ€™s work full of danger.

 

โ€œGod is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.โ€ โ€“ Psalms 46:1, KJV

 

๐—Ÿ๐˜†๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐˜€

A mighty fortress is our God, A bulwark never failing; 

Our helper He, amid the flood Of mortal ills prevailing.

For still our ancient foe Doth seek to work us woe; His craft and power are great; 

And armed with cruel hate, On earth is not his equal.

 

Did we in our own strength confide, Our striving would be losing, 

Were not the right man on our side, The man of God’s own choosing.

Dost ask who that may be? Christ Jesus, it is He, Lord Sabaoth, His name, 

From age to age the same, And He must win the battle.

 

And though this world, with devils filled, Should threaten to undo us, 

We will not fear, for God hath willed His truth to triumph through us.

The prince of darkness grim, We tremble not for him; His rage we can endure, 

For lo! his doom is sure, One little word shall fell him.

 

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.
