A Mighty Fortress Is Our God

June 25, 2019
By Martin Luther

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

PSALM 46:1


A Mighty Fortress Is Our God

A mighty fortress is our God,

A trusty shield and weapon;

He helps us free from ev'ry need

That hath us now o'ertaken.

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 Sabaoth Lord,

And there's none other God;

He holds the field forever.


"A Mighty Fortress Is Our God" (Lutheran Service Book 656:1-2)
