A mighty Fortress is our God

1
A mighty Fortress is our God,
A Bulwark never failing;
Our Helper He amid the flood
Of mortal ills prevailing:
For still our ancient foe
Doth seek to work us woe;
His craft and power are great,
And, armed with cruel hate,
On earth is not his equal.
2
Did we in our own strength confide,
Our striving would be losing;
Were not the right Man on our side,
The Man of God’s own choosing:
Dost ask who that may be?
Christ Jesus, it is He;
Lord Sabaoth His Name,
From age to age the same,
And He must win the battle.
3
And though this world, with devils filled,
Should threaten to undo us,
We will not fear, for God hath 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.
4
That word above all earthly powers,
No thanks to them, abideth;
The Spirit and the gifts are ours
Through Him who with us sideth:
Let goods and kindred go,
This mortal life also;
The body they may kill:
God’s truth abideth still,
His Kingdom is forever.

This song always brings more than one tears to my eyes, especially when the name Jesus is mentioned, and then again by metaphor as “one little word”. That little word, Jesus, is the word so powerful that when we hear it we are inclined to bow - and we will bow before the real Word and declare that Jesus is King of Kings and Lord of Lords. This little word stands in my place against all evil and woes and foes and anything that can threaten my life as a Child of God and against my fears.

I have come to experience deliverance with this precious hymn, I can picture Luther comfronting all the forces of evil and darkness there in at the Diet of Worms in 1521, and the great victory God gave him, this little and humble monk we this all for all faith, single handedly struck the very foundations of falsehood, deceit and ignorance restoring the doctrine of true faith, sing along when you confront persecution and strife, and see how the presence of the Lord is drawn to you and your situation to your battles and see Him overcome as The Lord of Sebaoth!!!!
