الله ملجأ لنا وقوة على الدوام

Representative Text

1 - اللهُ ملجأٌ لنا
وقُوةٌ على الدوامْ
عونٌ شديدٌ ثابتٌ
في الضيقِ حِصنٌ وسلامْ
لذاك لا نخشى ولو تزَلْزَلتْ
بنا الأراضي والجبالُ انقلبتْ
للبحرِ من هولِ الصِّدامْ

2 - يا أيها الناس انظروا
ماذا القديرُ يفعلُ
قد جعلَ الأرضَ قفا
راً والحروبُ يُبطِلُ
والقوسَ قد كسَّرَ والرمحَ قطعْ
ومركباتِ الحربِ للنار دفعْ
ذاك القويُّ الأزلُ

3 - يقولُ كُفوا واعلَموا
أني أنا اللهُ القديرْ
مرتفِعٌ بين الملا
على كبيرٍ وصغيرْ
ربُّ الجنودِ الحقُّ بارينا لنا
ملجأُنا طول المدى بل حصنُنا
إلهُنا الربُّ الـمُجيرْ

The original rhythms of EIN FESTE BURG (see 469) had already reached their familiar isorhythmic (all equal rhythms) shape by the time of Johann S. Bach (PHH 7) in the eighteenth century. The harmonization is taken from his Cantata 80. Many organ and choral works are based on this chorale, including…
