A mighty fortress is our God, a bulwark never failing;
Our helper He, amid the flood of mortal ills prevailing:
For still our ancient foe doth seek to work us woe;
His craft and power are great, and, armed with cruel hate,
On earth is not his equal.

Did we in our own strength confide, our striving would be losing;
Were not the 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.

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.

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.

Martin Luther, 1529

  1. I found your blog through another blog that I read daily. I read about your family and the trials you are facing with your son. Please know that I have added him and the rest of your family to my prayer list. I have also put up the “Pray for Me” image on my blog. Thank you for sharing your life/family and for allowing me the opportunity to pray for your precious child.

  2. I read about your family in another blog. Just want to tell you that you will be in my prayers. Thank you for the beautiful hymn. I wish I had more to offer, but I’m just a regular gal who loves to pray for others. I’m adding you to my list. God bless you with His grace, every moment of every day.
