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.

A great hymn of victory! It's full of the assurance of victory to those who trust in Him! Indeed a Mighty is our GGod, our strength, and indeed a very present help in times of trouble! Well composed! To God be the glory!

This hymn has it all! Let goods and kindred go... Yes, letting go is a battle with the devil whispering in my ear and controlling others that I love, but, a mighty fortress is our God!! Amen, thank you, Jesus

The older hymns have significant doctrinal value, and this one is no different. I sing this at times to the Lord as a form of praise and worship and remembrance of the victory we have.

The Lord brought this song to mind this morning as I contemplated the daily struggle I face in honoring the Father, not just in part -- but in every way. I was drawn to the word "bulwark." To think of God's faithfulness as a solid wall raised in our defense is so comforting. I find myself trying to fight off the enemy, single-handed. What a fool I can be! Praise God it's not my job to defeat Satan. The work is done -- and we all must trust, obey... and rest in His love.
