HYMN SPOTLIGHT

Ask Ye What Great Thing I Know (1741)

Johann Christoph Schwendler, 1672-1730

The author of this hymn was one of the most popular preachers of his generation in Germany. It is said that he would sometimes begin worship services in the small church at Niederwiese at 5 or 6 in the morning and that people would come in succession to fill the church building until two or three in the afternoon! He based this hymn on 1 Corinthians 2:2 (“For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified”) and Galatians 6:14 (“May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.”)
