"God of the Movements and Martyrs" was written in honor of the 85th anniversary of the North Carolina Council of Churches. the Council was formed in 1935 to address racial injustice, and continues to work for peace, justice, equity, and inclusion. The hymn honors Christians who have been working for a better world for generations, because of their faith, and invites all of us to join in that sacred work.
Note: There are several different versions of this song on the CMP site. Each version has it's own product page and related downloads available. It is the same song done if several different styles by several different artists.
This particular arrangement by liturgical musician Wil Smith brings this powerful new hymn into the style of traditional congregational hymn.
