A New Song
Christ Lutheran Church is blessed to have an accomplished Lutheran organist who is a talented hymnist as well. This recently written hymn gives Christians hope "even when steeples are falling." The melody is Consolation (The King Shall Come).
Though castles burn and kings are slain
Though kingdoms grow and flame
Though war destroy the peaceful plain
We rest in baptized frame
Though toil and pain consume the earth
Though foes seem to prevail
We ne’er the less go forth in mirth
Adorned with wedding veil
Though Satan harp discordant strife
We shall not fear the flood
We feast on Christ and gain his life
In body and in blood.
With voice like thunder, praise we God
The Father, Spirit, Son!
The holy Trinity we laud
Eternal Three in One!
Tune: Consolation (The King Shall Come)
