About the Hymn

The lyrics to this hymn were written by Lutheran Church–Canada pastor, Rev. Kurt E. Reinhardt in response to the unprecedented situation brought about by the COVID-19 crisis. The tune is in the public domain. The hymn came to Pastor Reinhardt on the day he found out that their congregation would have to suspend the public Divine Service amid the COVID-19 pandemic. He and his family began singing it nightly as an intercession for the Lord’s people in these difficult days.

Performed by Beatrice M. Reinhardt, Pastor Reinhardt’s 19-year-old daughter, and accompanied by Mr. Douglas Bulmer, organist at Trinity Lutheran Church (Gowanstown, ON). Pastor Reinhardt would like to encourage people to print or disseminate this hymn for devotional use during these trying days, and a link to the music and lyrics is available for download via the button below.
