Song of the Day #214

Song of the Day: A Mighty Fortress is Our God is a beautiful hymn with words and music by Martin Luther. In addition to the German language version, this hymn has two English versions: the American Lutheran composite translation and one written by Frederick H. Hedge. I've loved this hymn since hearing it as a kid, as the opening theme of "Davey and Goliath," a TV classic of the great Art Clokey, whose wonderful "Claymation" brought us Gumby and Pokey too. This is a special greeting to my Western Christian friends, who celebrate Easter today. Eat, drink, snack on Peeps, and watch "Ben-Hur"!
