Hymn by Martin Luther
Illustrated by Jason Jaspersen

In stock

Accompanied by these powerful illustrations, sing Luther's famous hymn, based upon Psalm 46. For though sin, death, and the devil would torment us, Christ has won forgiveness, life, and salvation on our behalf. This is the Church's confidence, joy, and comfort.

Both young and old will appreciate this keepsake edition, published in commemoration of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. Bonus content includes God's Word Is Our Great Heritage, a supplemental verse by N. F. S. Grundtvig.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Though devils all the world should fill, All eager to devour us,
    We tremble not, we fear no ill; They shall not overpow'r 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.
  4. 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,
    Though these all be gone, Our vict'ry has been won;
    The Kingdom ours remaineth.
