Today's Heroes: Martin Rinkart

In the midst of true horrors during the Thirty Years War, Martin Rinkart wrote the following prayer for his children:

Now thank we all our God
With hearts and hands and voices;
Who wondrous things hath done,
In whom this world rejoices.
Who, from our mother's arms,
Hath led us on our way,
With countless gifts of love,
And still is ours today.
