A Mighty Fortress Is Our God A Shield

A mighty fortress is our God
A shield that never fails
Amid the flood of mortal ills
His power will prevail
Our ancient foe is cruel and armed with hate
Yet with one word he’ll bow to Jesus’ reign

Hope in God O my soul
He is strong and He is strong to save
Hope in God
He’s a rock and your hiding place
He’s a Mighty Fortress

We dare not trust in our own hand
Or all would be in vain
Our confidence is in the one
Who holds the worlds in place
He fights for us the sovereign Lord of hosts
From age to age the triumph’s His alone
