God's Word Is Our Great Heritage

Melody - "Reuter", Fritz Reuter, 1916; Seq. by Richard Jordan

Nikolai F. S. Grundtvig, 1817

God's Word is our great heritage
And shall be ours forever;
To spread its light from age to age
Shall be our chief endeavor.
Through life it guides our way,
In death it is our stay.
Lord, grant, while worlds endure,
We keep its teachings pure.
Throughout all generations.

This is actually the fifth verse of the Danish version of "A Mighty Fortress".
