By Strength Unknown (DEMO) – Martin Luther's Prayer | Foto Sisters – Adelyn

The night before Martin Luther was brought before the Diet of Worms, called to recant his writings, completely alone and in solitude, he cried out to his God for help.

This song was inspired from that prayer…

This song was written as a tribute to what is now the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. Martin luther’s 95 Theses were sent to Albert of Brandenburg, the Archbishop of Mainz, the date being October 31, 1517. It is this date that the Christians have marked as the beginning of the Reformation and the pursuit for even “the common people” to know the God of the Bible.

O God, Almighty, Everlasting
Dreadful is the world
With open mouth to swallow me
And how small my faith in Thee

The weakness of the flesh
And power of the evil one
If I depend on worldly strength
Surely all is over

O God, O God
O thou my God!
I have nothing to contend
With these men of the world
The work not mine, but Thine!

My God! Dost Thou not hear?
Art Thou no longer living?
No, I know Thou cannot die
But now are only hiding
Thou has chosen me for this work
Fulfill Thy will, O God
Forsake me not
For Thy Beloved sake
The Christ, my Shield, my Tower

My God, Where art Thou?
Lord, where art Thou?
Come! I pray, I’m ready
To lay my life down for Thy truth
The cause, Thine own, is holy
I will not let Thee go
Nor yet for all eternity
And though this world with devils filled
And torn my body lay
I have Thy word and this I know
My soul is Thine forever

So now send help
God send help
O God send help
