Soul Food: ‘King Alfred’s War Song’

I feel the need for the spiritual nourishment that this hymn provides. If it really was written by King Alfred the Great, it comes to us from a time when it must have seemed, to many, that the light of Christianity was going to be snuffed out by violent paganism in an overwhelming host of enemies.

It wasn’t! For how can Almighty God ever be defeated?

Not then, not now, not ever…

  1. My sister and I really like this song! We heard it on an audio adventure about King Alfred.

  2. You got that right. I was blessed on the way to my shopping trip this morning, before all the diffiiculty happened. At least the highway was clear. I was reminded of all the Scripture verses about the Lord’s great power and authority and how at the appointed time, every knee will bow, every tongue will confess that He is Lord. It just filled me with joy such as I have not experienced for a long time.
