[Verse] G A mighty fortress is our God, C A bulwark never failing; G D Our helper he amid the flood C Of mortal ills prevailing. G For still our ancient foe Em Doth seek to work us woe; G C His craft and pow'r are great; Em And armed with cruel hate, G On earth is not his equal. [Verse] G Did we in our own strength confide, C Our striving would be losing; D Were not the right Man on our side, G Em The Man of God's own choosing. D Dost ask who that may be? G C Em Christ Jesus, it is he, G Lord Sabaoth his name, G D From age to age the same, Em And He must win the battle. [Verse] G And though this world, with devils filled, C Should threaten to undo us, G Em We will not fear, for God hath willed C D His truth to triumph through us. G The prince of darkness grim, D We tremble not for him; C His rage we can endure, Em For lo! his doom is sure; G One little word shall fell him. [Verse] G Em That Word above all earthly pow'rs, Em No thanks to them, abideth; D The Spirit and the gifts are ours G Through him who with us sideth; C Let goods and kindred go, G This mortal life also; D The body they may kill: Em God's truth abideth still; G His kingdom is for-ev-er.
