Great hymns of the Christian faith have been sung in churches the world over for generations. A Mighty Fortress is Our God is one of the best loved hymns of the Protestant tradition. Composed and written by Martin Luther, the hymn has been called the “Battle Hymn of the Reformation.” The words paraphrase Psalm 46. Be Thou My Vision is a traditional hymn from Ireland often attributed to Dallan Forgaill in the 8th century, commemorating the ministry of Patrick of Ireland in a region of the Roman Empire ready for spiritual awakening. All Creatures of Our God and King was written by Francis of Assisi, circa 1225. He wrote this hymn shortly before his death, but it was not published for almost 400 years. Francis founded a monastic order, the “Mendicants,” who followed the way of poverty, ministering to the poor and sick. This hymn attributed all things on earth to God. O Sacred Head Now Wounded is a Christian hymn that is based on a medieval poem addressing Christ’s body on the cross. The hymn was a reminder of our sin and the wonder of God’s grace that forgave all.
