Paul Gerhardt was among the foremost of all Lutheran hymnwriters, writing over 120 hymns. Gerhardt lived a very difficult life, suffering through the 30 years war in Europe, loosing four of his children and his wife to sickness and disease, and even suffering for his faith. Yet the promises of God were his source of strength throughout those difficult times. This hymn reminds us of the God who is for us too, and who is with us whatever we face in this life. Join Pastors Rob Sauers and Nathanael Mayhew as they consider a few verses from this comforting hymn based on Romans 8:31-39!
