|The Lutheran Parish in Priekule, Lithuania|
Rev. Dr. Darius Petkūnas writes in the Resurgence of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Lithuania after the Soviet Era, "All Lithuanians love to sing and Lutherans extend this love for music to parish life. From the days of the Reformation the Lithuanian Lutheran Church has been a singing church. The great German hymns were all translated into Lithuanian, and hymns by Lithuanian Lutherans have been added to this treasury," During worship, we had opportunity to hear this rich musical heritage in the confirmation choir and in the hymnody.

After the sermon, the congregation sang, "Kelkitės, šlovingai aidi" (Wake, Awake for Night is Flying or Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme in German) by Philipp Nicolai.
Our visit to Priekulė was very pleasant.
