A Mighty Fortress is Our God

Verse 1: 

C         G   Em  Am  D   G 

A mighty Fortress is our God 

Am Em        Am Dm G7 C 

A Bulwark never failing 

C          G Em Am    D    G 

Our Helper He amidst the flood 

Am  Em         Am Dm G7 C 

Of mortal ills prevailing 

 C         D           G 

For still our ancient foe 

      C       G       Am 

Doth seek to work us woe 

 E   Am        D7         G 

His craft and pow’r are great 

     F     C    Dm    E 

And armed with cruel hate 

Am  Em          Am Dm  G7 C 

On earth is not his e – qual 

Verse 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 

Dost 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 

Verse 3: 

That word above all earthly pow’rs 

No thanks to them a – bideth 

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 for – ever
