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.
