Translation of Przywara’s Hymn to Christ the King

Over at The Josias I have translated a hymn to Christ the King by Fr. Erich Przywara, S.J. I tried to preserve enough of the original metre that the English can be sung to Fr. Josef Kreitmaier, S.J.’s stirring melody. I also wrote an introduction explaining the use that was made of that hymn by Catholic Youth in dark times.
