O God of love and truth

Representative Text

1 O God of love and truth,
Here see the Church's youth
Coming to Thee,
Praising Thy holy name,
Spreading abroad Thy fame,
And for Thy cause aflame
Ever to be.

2 Grant us that we fulfill
Thy good and gracious will
Each day and hour;
Give strength to heart and soul,
Make Thou our spirit whole,
Help us to reach our goal,
Kept by Thy pow'r.

3 In all we say and do
May we to Thee be true,
Thou God of love,
Till we our work have done,
Till we our course have run,
Till we the crown have won
With Thee above.

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