During the Reformation, Martin Luther (1483-1546) wrote many hymns for worship. Luther wrote both the words and the melodies of these songs. All of his songs point to Jesus Christ and proclaim the mercy God has sent us through the redemptive work of Jesus. Along with the Apostle Paul, Martin Luther preached that our salvation is the work of Jesus Christ alone.

God i strongpe-ela banis b’long mi, em yet i helpim mi-i sanap.
Oltaim i sa-ave stro-ongim mi, taim kain kain hevi i-i kamap.
Satan i wokabout, na mi mas lu-ukaut.
Em man b’long giaman tru, em i strongpela tu,
i no gat man long gra-aun olsem.

Strong b’long mi ye-et i no-o inap, bai mi pundaun na ba-agarap.
Tasol Helpi-im b’long mi-i i stap, God makim em, na i-i kamap.
Husat Helpim b’long mi? God Pikini-ini.

na em inap long wi-inim pait.

S’pos man b’long Sa-atan planti tumas ol i laik bagara-apim mi.

Ol man bilong tudak laik mekim ha-ambak
Tasol i no inap, Tok bilong God i stap,
na em inap long ra-ausim ol.

Tok bilong Go-od i bo-osim graun, ol man i no ina-ap sakim.

Ol bagarapim mi na bodi bilong mi,

Kingdom b’long God stap long yumi.
