Hymn/Song Information

A mighty fortress is our God a trusty




A mighty fortress is our God,
a trusty shield and weapon;
He helps us free from every need
that hath us now overtaken.
The old evil foe now means
deadly woe; deep guile and great might
Are his dread arms in fight;
on Earth is not his equal.


With might of ours
can naught be done,
soon were our loss effected;
But for us fights the Valiant One,
Whom God Himself elected.
Ask ye, Who is this? Jesus Christ it is.
Of Sabbath Lord, and theres
none other God;
He holds the field forever.


Though devils all the world should fill,
all eager to devour us.
We tremble not, we fear no ill,
they shall not overpower us.
This worlds prince may still scowl
fierce as he will,
He can harm us none, hes
judged; the deed is done;
One little word can fell him.


The Word they still shall let remain
nor any thanks have for it;
Hes by our side upon the plain
with His good gifts and Spirit.
And take they our life, goods,
fame, child and wife,
Let these all be gone,
they yet have nothing won;
The Kingdom ours remaineth.
