A Mighty Fortress Is Our God

This song is by Frank Asper.

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 there's 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 world's prince may still
Scowl fierce as he will
He can harm us none
He's judged the deed is done
One little word can fell him

The Word they still shall let remain
Nor any thanks have for it
He's 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 our remaineth

Tommy Walker; Martin Luther
