A mighty Fortress is our God,

A trusty Shield and Weapon;

He helps us free from every need

That hath us now o'er taken.

The old bitter foe

Means us deadly woe:

Deep guile and great might,

Are His dread arms in fight.

On earth is not His equal.

 

With might of ours can naught be done,

Soon were our loss effected;

But for us fights the Valiant One

Whom God Himself elected.

Ask ye, Who is this?

Jesus Christ it is,

Jehovah's mighty Son,

And there's no other One;

He holds the field forever.
