“The Hebrews have done more to civilize men than any other nation.  If I were an atheist…I should still believe fate had ordained the Jews to be the most essential instrument for civilizing the nations.”

“A Mighty Fortress Is Our God”   (stanzas 3,4)

 

And though this world, with devils filled, should threaten to undo us,
We will not fear, for God hath willed His truth to triumph through us:
The Prince of Darkness grim, we tremble not for him;
His rage we can endure, for lo, his doom is sure,
One little word shall fell him.

 

That word above all earthly powers, no thanks to them, abideth;
The Spirit and the gifts are ours through Him Who with us sideth:
Let goods and kindred go, this mortal life also;
The body they may kill: God’s truth abideth still,
His kingdom is forever.
