My small 14 person choir just performed this song at Reformation. We had to practice over and over the rhythmical sections, but all agreed it was a fantastic setting. Would love to see the trumpet music.

God is Our Refuge and Strength

John Behnke, in his setting of Psalm 46, wonderfully crafts the text of this psalm for Reformation Day. The variety with which this can be used makes it easily adaptable to fit the musical resources of any congregation! While brass and bells are wonderful additions, they aren't necessary. Children can easily learn the refrain and help guide the congregation! Our Sunday School choir, the adult choir, the brass and the congregation sang this for Reformation 2016 and we will use it again! Thanks be to God for the writing of Dr. Behnke, a servant of the Gospel!
