A Mighty Fortress Is Our God

A mighty fortress is our God, a bulwark never failing;

Our helper He, amid the flood of mortal ills prevailing:

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.


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.


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.


That word above all earthly powers, no thanks to them, abideth;

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 forever.



O Worship the King 

O worship the King, all glorious above,

And gratefully sing His power and His love;

Our Shield and Defender, the Ancient of Days,

Pavilioned in splendor and girded with praise.


O tell of His might, O sing of His grace,

Whose robe is the light, whose canopy space!

His chariots of wrath the deep thunderclouds form,

And dark is His path on the wings of the storm.


Thy bountiful care what tongue can recite?

It breathes in the air; it shines in the light,

It streams from the hills, it descends to the plain,

And sweetly distills in the dew and the rain.


Frail children of dust, and feeble as frail,

In Thee do we trust, nor find Thee to fail:

Thy mercies how tender, how firm to the end,

Our Maker, Defender, Redeemer, and Friend.



My Savior’s Love (What Tongue Could Tell)

Verse 1

What tongue could tell my Savior’s love

What song of angels could describe

Could endless praises be enough

To echo full His sacrifice

How worthy is the Lamb of God

Beyond all might or skill of pen

Still we confess and strain towards

Such mystery and magnificence



My Savior’s love

My Savior’s love

What could compare

What tongue could tell my Savior’s love


Verse 2

What tune could carry on its wings

The beauty of that final breath

What words dare paint the awesome scene

When God stood in the stead of man

When Jesus Christ the radiant One

Took on the shadows of our hate

Then rose again just as the sun

With light and power in fullest grace


Verse 3

And when in death this tongue is stilled

My song of life has reached the end

Though as a flower I may wilt

This everlasting truth will stand

No death or life could separate

Me from the love of Christ my Lord

This hope is sure from age to age



O Great God

O great God of highest heaven,

Occupy my lowly heart;

Own it all and reign supreme,

Conquer every rebel power.

Let no vice or sin remain

That resists Your holy war;

You have loved and purchased me—

Make me Yours forevermore.


I was blinded by my sin;

Had no ears to hear Your voice—

Did not know Your love within,

Had no taste for heaven’s joys.

Then Your Spirit gave me life,

Opened up Your Word to me;

Through the gospel of Your Son

Gave me endless hope and peace.


Help me now to live a life

That’s dependent on Your grace;

Keep my heart and guard my soul

From the evils that I face.

You are worthy to be praised

With my every thought and deed!

O great God of highest heaven,

Glorify Your Name through me.



All Praise to Him

Verse 1

All praise to Him, the God of light

Who formed the mountains by His might;

All praise to Him Who names the stars

That sing His fame in skies afar!

All praise to Him Who reigns in love,

Who guides the galaxies above,

Yet bends to hear our every prayer

With sovereign pow’r and tender care.


Verse 2

All praise to Him whose love is seen

In Christ the Son, the Servant King;

Who left behind His glorious throne

To pay the ransom for His own!

All praise to Him Who humbly came

To bear our sorrow, sin, and shame;

Who lived to die, Who died to rise—

The all-sufficient sacrifice.


Verse 3

All praise to Him whose pow’r imparts

The love of God within our hearts;

The Spirit of all truth and peace,

The fount of joy and holiness.

To Father, Son, and Spirit now

Our souls we lift, our wills we bow

To You, the triune God, we raise

With loving hearts our song of praise.
