For the next four episodes, Gillespie and Riley dig into Lutheran hymns that are “as Lutheran As It Gets.”

Lazarus Spengler originally wrote “Durch Adams Fall ganz verderbt Menschlich Natur und Wesen” as a nine stanza text of eight lines. Matthias Loy freely translated Spengler’s text into Long Meter. Spengler’s hymn first appeared in Walter’s Geystliche gesangk Buchleyn (Wittenberg, 1524), Johann Walter’s choir book. This text was held in high regard at the time of the Reformation, but during the eras of Pietism and the Enlightenment, it fell into disuse. Matthias Loy’s free translation appeared in The Lutheran Hymnal (1880) of the Ohio Synod and in The Lutheran Hymnal (1941), Lutheran Worship (1982) and now in Lutheran Service Book (2006).

Text: “All mankind Fell in Adam’s Fell” LSB 562, Lazarus Spengler
