A Mighty Fortress

Author: Martin Luther; Frederick H. Hedge Meter: Appears in 635 hymnals First Line: A mighty fortress is our God, A bulwark never failing Lyrics: 1 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 does seek to work us woe; his craft and power are great, and armed with cruel hate, on earth is not his equal. 2 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. You 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. 3 And though this world, with devils filled, should threaten to undo us, we will not fear, for God has 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. 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!

Be Strong in God

Author: Susan Peterson Meter: Appears in 1 hymnal First Line: Be strong in God and in His power Lyrics: 1. Be strong in God and in His power; Put on His armor every day. Thus you can take your stand each hour; The devil’s schemes won’t lead you astray. The battle’s like a flood, Though not ’gainst flesh and blood; But ’gainst the spiritual realm, With Satan at the helm; You face the powers of darkness. 2. Take God’s full armor—your life surround, So when the day of evil appears, You’ll then be able to stand your ground, And after all, to stand without fear. Stand firm, then, in the faith, The belt of truth in place; Breastplate of righteousness, Feet shod with readiness That comes from the true Gospel of peace. 3. Take, over all, the shield of faith, To quench the flaming arrows outpoured. Salvation’s helmet wear over your face, And take the Word, the Spirit’s sword. Pray in the Spirit’s power, All kinds of prayers each hour. Be always on alert, And pray for all the Church. Through God you’ll win the battle! Used With Tune: EIN' FESTE BURG

We Bless the Triune God of Might

Author: Neil Barham Meter: Appears in 1 hymnal Lyrics: 1. We bless the Triune God of Might, Our Sovereign and our Savior, Who puts our enemies to flight, And guards us with His favor! Our song goes up to Him, Above the seraphim, Where awestruck angels gaze At Him, Ancient of Days, On high He reigns, exalted. 2. Majestic Father, ever supreme, Alone in light and glory, At Your command the heavens gleam And sing creation’s story. The wind and waves obey When Your Word bids them stay; All nature shows Your face Revealed in every place, To every heart and mind of man. 3. Jesus, the Christ, Anointed One, Firstborn of all creation, In human flesh, yet God the Son, The Captain of Salvation! My Righteousness You are! ’Tis written in the scars That beautify Your face, Proclaiming holy grace. In You all truth and love abide. 4. Great Spirit of the living Lord, Our Comforter and faithful Guide— You bring to us God’s out-breathed Word, Suffusing it with increate light. Convict us of our sin! Renew our hearts within! Restore salvation’s joy! Our hearts and minds employ In lives that flame with God-endued fire! 5. Robed in pure light that knew no dawn, Three Persons, yet One Essence, Avenging sin with righteous sword drawn, Yet mercy fills Your presence! Your wrath is great, and just; But in Your grace we trust! Your lovingkindness sure Will hold our souls secure, ’Til we behold Your face at last! Used With Tune: EIN FESTE BURG

Our Lord and God, Oh, Bless This Day

Author: Carl Döving; George T. Rygh; Johan N. Brun Meter: Appears in 7 hymnals Lyrics: 1 Our Lord and God, oh, bless this day And hear us, we implore Thee; None of Thy children turn away Who now appear before Thee. We come before Thy face And pray: Let Thy rich grace Descend from heav'n above In all Thy wondrous love And keep us by Thy Spirit. 2 Oh, bless Thy Word to all the young; Let them, Thy truth possessing, Bear witness true with heart and tongue, Their faith and ours confessing. From mother's arms Thy grace With love did them embrace; Baptized into Thy name, As Thine Thou didst them claim. O Lord, as Thine now own them! 3 When they their vows today renew, Accept them with Thy favor; And when they promise to be true, May they forget it never! But they are weak and frail When Satan's hosts assail; Oh, arm them with Thy might And grant that in the fight They unto death be faithful! 4 And when they leave their childhood home, When Satan comes alluring, May their baptismal grace become A refuge reassuring! Blest he who then can say: "God's cov'nant stands for aye." He ne'er shall be undone Who trusts in God alone-- God is his mighty Father! Amen.

God is our stronghold firm and sure

Author: Catherine Winkworth; Luther Meter: Appears in 2 hymnals Lyrics: God is our stronghold firm and sure, Our trusty shield and weapon, He shall deliver us, whate'er Of ill to us may happen. Our ancient Enemy In earnest now is he, Much craft and great might Arm him for the fight, On earth is not his fellow. Our might is nought but weakness, soon Should we the battle lose, But for us fights the rightful Man, Whom God Himself doth choose. Asketh thou His name? 'Tis Jesus Christ, the same Whom Lord of Hosts we call, God only over all; None from the field can drive Him. What though the world were full of fiends, That would us sheer devour! We know we yet shall win the day, We fear not all their power. The Prince of this world still, May struggle as he will, He nothing can prevail, A word shall make him quale, For he is judged of heaven. The word of God they cannot touch, Yet have no thanks therefore, God by His Spirit and His gifts, Is with us in the war. Then let them take our life, Goods, honour, children, wife, Though nought of these we save, Small profit shall they have, The kingdom ours abideth.

All Mankind Fell in Adam's Fall

Author: L. Spengler, 1479-1536 ; M. Loy, 1828-1915 Meter: Appears in 14 hymnals Lyrics: 1 All mankind fell in Adam's fall, One common sin infects them all; From sire to son the bane descends, And over all the curse impends. 2 Through all man's pow'rs corruption creeps And him in dreadful bondage keeps; In guilt he draws his infant breath And reaps its fruits of woe and death. 3 From hearts depraved, to evil prone, Flow thoughts and deeds of sin alone; God's image lost, the darkened soul Nor seeks nor finds its heav'nly goal. 4 But Christ, the second Adam, came To bear our sin and woe and shame, To be our Life, our Light, our Way, Our only Hope, our only Stay. 5 As by one man all mankind fell And, born in sin, was doomed to hell, So by one Man, who took our place, We all received the gift of grace. 6 We thank Thee, Christ; new life is ours, New light, new hope, new strength, new pow'rs: May grace our ev'ry way attend Until we reach our journey's end!
