A Mighty Fortress Is Our God

7   7   7 6 -6   -7  7-7 -6   6
A might-y fo-r-tress i-s our God,

7 -7   -6   6  -6 -5 6 -4  4
A bul-wark nev-er fa-il-in-g

 7    7  7  6-6 -7 7 -7  -6    6
Our help-er H-e  a-mi-d- the flood

 7 -7  -6   6   -6  -5 5 -4 4
Of mor-tal ills pre-va-il-in-g.

 4    6   -6   6   -5   6
For still our an-cient foe,

  4    6   6  -6  -7  7
Doth seek to work us woe

-7    7   -7   -6   -6    6
His craft and power are great

-6    -6    6   -6 -5   5
And, armed with cru-el hate.

 7   -7  -6  6  -6  -5 5 -4 4
On earth is not His e-e-e-qual.
verse 2
Did we in our own strength confide,
Our striving would be losing,
Were not he right man on our side,
The man of God's own choosing,
Dost ask who that may be?
Christ Jesus, it is He
Lord Sabaoth His name,
From age to age the same,
And He must win the battle.

verse 3
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.

Verse 4
That word above all earthly powers,
No 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.
