A Mighty Fortress Is Our God

	  C        G        Am D   G    Am Em F    C  Am Dm G C 
A mighty fortress is our God, a  bulwark never fai--ling; 
C          G    Am  D   G     Am Em F   C    Am Dm G C 
Our helper He, amid the flood of mortal ills prevai--ling. 
C         Am  G D     G   C    G    C  F    Bdim  Am 
For still our ancient foe doth seek to work us    woe; 
E   Am    E   Am    D   G      F          C    A  Dm E 
His craft and power are great, and, armed with cruel hate, 
Am Em    F  C   Am  Dm G C 
On earth is not his e -- qual. 
 
C         G       Am       D  G     Am  Em  F    C     Am Dm G C 
Did we in our own strength confide, our striving would be lo - sing, 
C            G         Am D   G     Am  Em  F  C     Am  Dm G C 
Were not the right man on our side, the man of God's own choo-sing. 
C        Am  G    D   G    C      G C    F  Bdim Am 
Dost ask who that may be?  Christ Jesus, it is   He; 
E    Am E Am  D   G     F        C  A   Dm  E 
Lord Sa-baoth his name, from age to age the same, 
Am  Em F    C   Am  Dm G C 
And He must win the bat--tle. 
 
C               G           Am D   G        
And though this world, with devils filled,  
Am     Em   F   C  Am Dm G C 
should threaten to un-do   us 
C           G         Am  D    G      Am  Em    F  C  Am   Dm G    C 
We will not fear, for God hath willed his truth to triumph through us. 
C          Am G   D    G     C  G   C   F   Bdim Am 
The Prince of Darkness grim, we tremble not for  him; 
E   Am   E  Am  D G     F       C   A    Dm E 
His rage we can endure, for lo, his doom is sure; 
Am  Em F   C    Am    Dm G C 
One little word shall fell him. 
 
C          G        Am   D  G       Am Em     F  C     Am Dm G C 
That word above all earthly powers, no thanks to them, a--bid--eth; 
C          G       Am    D   G    Am      Em  F   C    Am Dm G C 
The Spirit and the gifts are ours through him who with us sid--eth. 
C         Am  G  D    G   C    G  C   F    Bdim Am 
Let goods and kindred go, this mortal life al - so; 
E   Am E  Am   D   G     F           C A  Dm  E 
The bo-dy they may kill: God's truth a-bideth still; 
Am  Em  F   C  Am Dm G C 
His kingdom is forev - er. 
 
Verse 5 
A mighty fortress is our God 
A sword and shield victorious 
He breaks the cruel oppressor's rod 
And wins salvation glorious 
The old satanic foe 
Has sworn to work us woe 
With craft and dreadful might 
He arms himself to fight 
On earth he has no equal 
 
Verse 6 
No strength of ours can match his might 
We would be lost rejected 
But now a champion comes to fight 
Whom God Himself elected 
You ask who this may be 
The Lord of hosts is He 
Christ Jesus mighty Lord 
God's only Son adored 
He holds the field victorious 
 
Verse 7 
Though hordes of devils fill the land 
All threat'ning to devour us 
We tremble not unmoved we stand 
They cannot overpow'r us 
Let this world's tyrant rage 
In battle we'll engage 
His might is doomed to fail 
God's judgment must prevail 
One little word subdues him 
 
Verse 8 
God's Word forever shall abide 
No thanks to foes who fear it 
For God Himself fights by our side 
With weapons of the Spirit 
Were they to take our house 
Goods honor child or spouse 
Though life be wrenched away 
They cannot win the day 
The Kingdom's ours forever 
 
Verse 9 
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 
 
Verse 10 
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 
 
Verse 11 
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 
 
Verse 12 
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
