LSB 834 O God, O Lord of Heaven and Earth

This hymn, “O God, O Lord of¬†Heaven and Earth,” was written by Dr. Martin Franzmann in 1967 for the 450th anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation. The melody, called Wittenberg New, was composed by Jan Bender, a wonderful German Lutheran. It has a study, amazing melody that is quite challenging. But it is worth the effort, believe me.

Here is a video of it being sung at a Higher Things conference in 2014:

I’m told we will have brass accompanying us on this amazing hymn when we sing it in church on October 28. I hope you can be there!
