about

This song is a blending of Psalm 42 with Martin Luther’s classic hymn, “A Mighty Fortress,” set to new music. Our hope in writing the song was to create a fresh treatment of eternal truths that we so often need to preach to ourselves. No one and no thing is more powerful than God and He is for us. Though the world, Satan, and our own sinful nature work against us we have a great hope in a great God who is strong and strong to save. — Steve & Vikki

lyrics

VERSE 1
A mighty fortress is our God
A shield that never fails
Amid the flood of mortal ills
His power will prevail
Our ancient foe is cruel and armed with hate
Yet with one word he’ll bow to Jesus’ reign

CHORUS
Hope in God, O my soul
He is strong and He is strong to save
Hope in God
He’s a rock and your hiding place
He’s a mighty fortress

VERSE 2
We dare not trust in our own hand
Or all would be in vain
Our confidence is in the One
Who holds the worlds in place
He fights for us, the sovereign Lord of hosts
From age to age the triumph’s His alone
