One Little Word

The title comes from the lyric in Martin Luther’s famous hymn, “A Mighty Fortress” and the stanza:

And though this world, with devils filled, should threaten to undo us,
We will not fear, for God has willed, his truth to triumph through us.
The prince of darkness grim, we tremble not for him;
His rage we can endure, for lo! his doom is sure; one little word shall fell him.
