A mighty Fortress is our God

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.
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.
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.
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.

Both the melody and words are beautiful. Martin Luther lived in a terrible time in history where if one did not agree with the King or Queen, he could be beheaded or burned for their faith. God blessed Luther with the boldness to declare the truth of God's Word in a very dangerous time.

This wonderful song unites us as believers in the Lord through the wonderful promises He has given us in scripture. We are from different countries and may speak different languages but God is no respecter of persons. All praise to God for His wisdom, His love, His mighty power!

It tells the story of life here this side of eternity. Conflict continues until the Lord comes again or takes us home to be with Him. But He is the Victor! And He loves us! So amazing!

Thank you for taking the time to compile these God-inspired, anointed by the Lord, hymns. I was looking for lyrics that we would take to a nursing home to sing with residents. What I found on your site, with the music, is a place where I, personally can come to worship the Lord, EVEN BY MYSELF! I have been so blessed this morning: worshipping the Lord, just He and I, singing these songs of gratitude and praise to Him. THANK YOU! God Bless you, greatly. ALL PRAISE AND GLORY TO OUR WONDERFUL LORD, who loves us so very much, UNCONDITIONALLY!
