Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Your hand, in sight of all my foes, Does still my table spread; My cup with blessings overflows, Your oil anoints my head. 3 The sure provisions of my God Attend me all my days; O may your house be my abode, And all my work be praise. There would I find a settled rest, While others go and come; No more a stranger, or a guest, But like a child at home. Amen. Scripture: Psalm 23 Tune Title: RESIGNATION

A Mighty Fortress Is Our God

Author: Martin Luther; Frederic H. Hedge Hymnal: The Worshipbook #274 (1972) Meter: Irregular Topics: Service for the Lord's Day Opening of Worship; Acts of the Church Witness to the Resurrection—Funeral; Acts of the Church Witness to the Resurrection—Funeral; Acts of the Church Installation 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, The Lord of Hosts 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, is standing; The Spirit and the gifts are ours— We answer his commanding. Let goods and kindred go, This mortal life also; The body they may kill: God's truth is ruling still— His kingdom is forever! Amen. Scripture: Psalm 46 Tune Title: EIN' FESTE BURG
