ONCE AGAIN, LUTHER’S WORDS STILL SEEM TO FIT

FITSNews – September 11, 2007 – It probably seems at times like we don’t have a religious bone in our bodies, but for some reason last year on the old FITS website we felt the best way to commemorate the anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorists attacks was to simply reprint Martin Luther’s famous hymn “A Mighty Fortress Is Our God,” set to the tune of Ein’ Feste Burg.

We feel the same way this year …

1. A mighty fortress is our God, a bulwark never failing; our helper He amid the flood of mortal ills prevaling. For still our ancient foe doth seek to work us woe; his craft and power are great, and armed with cruel hate, on earth is not his equal.

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 Sabbaoth, His name, from age to age the same, and He must win the battle.

3. And though this world, with devils filled, should threaten to undo us, we will not fear, for God hath willed His truth to triumph through us. The Prince of Darkness grim, we tremble not for him; his rage we can endure, for lo, his doom is sure; one little word shall fell him.

4. That word above all earthly powers, no thanks to them, abideth; the Spirit and the gifts are ours, thru 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 forever.

And all the people said …
