A MIGHTY FORTRESS IS OUR GOD (REDUX) / JM

A MIGHTY FORTRESS IS OUR GOD (REDUX)
Lyrics by Josh McGary
Original Song by Martin Luther (c1527)

[Verse 1]

G D Em D
A mighty fortress is our God
Em C D G
His walls are never failing
G D Em D
Our helper even in lifes floods
Em C D G
Will always be prevailing
Em A7 D
And though our ancient foe
D B7 Em
Does seek to hurt us so
Em A7 D
The devils powers are great
C Am B7
yet even fueled with hate
Em G C G
There is for God no equal

[Verse 2]

G D Em D
When we in our own strength confide
Em C D G
Our strivings turn to losing
G D Em D
And if not the right Man on our side
Em C D G
The Man of God’s own choosing
Em A7 D
if asked who that may be
D B7 Em
Christ Jesus it is He
Em A7 D
Lord of hosts by Name
C Am B7
From age to age the same
Em G C G
And He has won our bat-tle

[Verse 3]

G D Em D
And though this world with devils filled
Em C D G
And threaten to undo us
G D Em D
We do not fear our God has willed
Em C D G
that His truth should triumph through us
Em A7 D
Though satan may be grim
D B7 Em
We tremble not at him
Em A7 D
His rage we can endure
C Am B7
because his doom is sure
Em G C G
By jesus power dispell him

[Verse 4]
G D Em D
God’s power above all other powers
Em C D G
By scripture he provided
G D Em D
The Spirit and the gifts are ours
Em C D G
Through Jesus Who we side with
Em A7 D
Let go of what you own
D B7 Em
Even your mortal home
Em A7 D
a body they can kill
C Am B7
God’s truth is always still
Em G C G
His kingdom is for ev – er

Em G C Bm
His kingdom is for ev – er

Em G C G
