Christ Jesus Victor

Something for the weekend.  To Jesus Christ, Our Sovereign King.  The hymn was written by a German-American priest, Father Martin Hellriegel, in 1941, specifically to rebut the claims of the Third Reich with the eternal message of Christ.  Here is a great essay with the story behind the hymn.  I find this comforting.  Evil often has its hour in the sun, to strut and parade, but, inevitably, Christ is always the final victor.
