Religious Music – A Mighty Fortress Is Our God lyrics

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 power 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 Sabboth, his name,
From age to age the same,
And He must win the battle.

And though 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 powers
Not thanks to them, abideth.
The Spirit and the gifts are ours
Through 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 forever...

A Mighty Fortress Is Our God meanings

  • u
    This song gives us a deep spiritual truth which the bible clearly speaks of and that is the ultimate defeat of our enemy satan. Ever the issue for us as christians is "will we fight our enemy in our flesh or die to self and allow christ to take the victory". When we apply galations 2: 20 we are victorious in the cross and satan has to give ground. Are we "lord and redemmer of our lives" or is" christ our mighty fortress the lord and redemmerof our lives". We must chose and I chose the words of this great hymn. Tommy.
