A Mighty Fortress is Our God                  Page 656


  1. A mighty fortress is our God, A trusty shield and weapon.

           He helps us free from every need, That hath us now over taken

           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.

  1. 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.
