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.

I had never sang this hymn. But when we were given it to us for the festival, the tune was so amazing. Since then I have listened and sung through it on a daily. I have explored most of the he versions. This hymn is sweet. Thx.

I had this hymn in my phone for about 2 years and never sang it with the lyrics but did that today. I played it the sound and followed with the lyrics here. I did it for 4 times. Very good hymn and shows the sovereignty of God and His protection over His children. God bless you!

The hymn is a sure inspiration that summarises how the Godhead has designed to through empty vessels as we, prevail over the ancient foe, the accuser of the brethren and enemy of the truth, in the battle of the ages. We praise God for his designs and wisdom to have included mortals, yea redeemed mortals as channels of exalting the truth, even Jesus Christ our Captain. Glory to the Father, to the Son and to the blessed Holy Spirit forever and ever. Amen!
