A Mighty Fortress

Album Life Light Up

Our God is, a consuming fire
A burning holy Flame, with glory and freedom
Our God is, the only righteous judge
Ruling over us with kindness and wisdom

We will keep our eyes on You
We will keep our eyes on You

A mighty fortress is our God
A sacred refuge is Your Name
Your Kingdom is unshakable
With You forever we will reign

Our God is, jealous for His own
None could comprehend, His love and His mercy
Our God is exalted on His throne
High above the heavens
Forever He’s worthy…

We will keep our eyes on You
We will keep our eyes on You

We will keep our eyes on You
We will keep our eyes on You
So we can set our hearts on You
Lord we will set our hearts on You!”

“..The greatest work that Luther accomplished was the translation of the New Testament into the language of the people. Then to the amazement of everyone, Luther began to write hymns and gospel songs. The people sang them with great fervor. Luther preached long and hard, becoming a forceful leader of one of the world’s greatest spiritual awakenings.

Hymnbooks began to be used in the schools and homes, as well as in the churches. The Christian worship songs became a spring of spirituality in the hearts and lives of the people.

The song for which Luther will be remembered is “A Mighty Fortress is our God,” written circa 1527. It exalts God to a high and lofty position in the minds and hearts of those who believe the message of the song. It is a paraphrase of Psalm: 46.

On the base of Luther’s tomb is inscribed, A Mighty Fortress Is Our God. It is said to be the greatest hymn of the greatest man in the greatest period in German history.

Historians declare that it has been sung by persecuted people on their way to exile, and by martyrs at their death. The song is rugged and strong, much like Luther himself. Frederick H. Hedge translated it from the German in 1853.
