Hymn/Song Information

God is a Stronghold and a Tower A Help




God is a Stronghold and a Tower,
A Help that never faileth,
A covering Shield,
a Sword of power,
When Satanís host assaileth.
In vain our crafty foe
Still strives to work us woe,
Still lurks and lies in wait
With more than earthly hate;
We will not faint, nor tremble.


Frail sinners are we:
naught remains
For hope or consolation,
Save in His strength
Whom God ordains
Our Captain of salvation.
Yes, Jesus Christ alone
The Lord of hosts we own,
God ere the world began,
The Word-made-flesh for man,
Still conquering, and to conquer.


Though fiercely strive
the hosts of ill
Within us, and around us,
With fiendish strength,
and fiendish skill,
Yet neíer may they confound us.
Manís night of dark despair,
When storm clouds fill the air,
In Godís triumphal hour,
The noonday of His power,
One word, and He prevaileth.


Our Fatherís truth abideth sure;
Christ, our Redeemer, liveth;
For us He pleads His offering pure,
To us His Spirit giveth.
Though dear ones pass away,
Though strength and life decay,
Yet loss shall be our gain,
For God doth still remain
Our All-in-all forever.
