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 pow’r 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 is His name, from age to age the same, and He must win the battle.

And tho’ 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 pow’r — no thanks to them — abideth:  the Spirit and the gifts are ours thro’ 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 for ever.

Inspiring Hymns #165

Lead On, O King Eternal

Lead on, O King Eternal, the day of march has come; henceforth in fields of conquest Thy tents shall be our home.  Thro’ days of preparation Thy grace has made us strong, and now, O King Eternal, we lift our battle song.

Lead on, O King Eternal, till sin’s fierce war shall cease, and holiness shall whisper the sweet Amen of peace;  For not with swords loud clashing, nor roll of stirring drums; with deeds of love and mercy, the heavenly kingdom comes.

Lead on, O King Eternal, we follow, not with fears; for gladness breaks like morning where’er Thy face appears;  Thy cross is lifted o’er us; we journey in its light:  the crown awaits the conquest; lead on, O God of might.

Inspiring Hymns #164

Ye Christian Heralds!

Ye Christian heralds! go proclaim salvation thro’ Immanuel’s name; to distant climes the tiding bear, and plant the Rose of Sharon there.

He’ll shield you with a wall of fire, with flaming zeal your hearts inspire, bid raging winds their fury cease, and hush the tempest into peace.

And when our labors all are o’er, then shall we meet to part no more — meet with the blood-bo’t throng to fall, and crown our Jesus — Lord of all.
