Lord, thine fore'er today

Lord, thine fore'er today

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Lord, Thine fore'er today
I vow to be,
And for Thy grace I pray
And cry to Thee:
Lord, do not leave my side,
My heav'nly Friend;
Keep me, whate'er betide,
Until the end.

2 Though all alone I stand
In storm and strife,
Though foes on ev'ry hand
Would take my life,
Though my weak, troubled heart
Would leave Thy Word,
Yet Thou my Savior art,
Jesus, my Lord!

3 And when my path through life
Draws near its end,
When sorrow, pain and strife
My steps attend,
Yet in Thy mercy mild,
Redeemer mine,
Take home Thy trusting child,
Forever Thine!

He and his followers organized the Lutheran Churches of the Reformation. He wrote several Bible Commentaries and translated many hymns.
