7 sacred songs performed at Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral

'All my Hope on God is Founded'

A product of the Protestant Reformation, “All my Hope on God is Founded” was composed by the short-lived yet prolific hymn-writer Joachim Neander in 1680, originally with the German name “Meine Hoffnung stehet feste.”

The hymn was translated into English in 1899 by Robert Bridge and eventually given its current melody by notable English composer Herbert Howells.
