A Song in Turmoil  (Psalm 46)

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.  Therefore, we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.   Psalm 46:1-3

Our Lord Strengthens the Frightened  1-3
Our Lord Preserves His Home                  4-7
Our Lord Quiets Doubters                          8-11 

A Mighty Fortress is Our God

A mighty Fortress is our God
A trusty Shield and Weapon
He helps us free from every need
That hath us now overtaken
The old evil Foe
Now means deadly woe
Deep guile and great might
Are his dread arms in fight
Our earth is not his equal

With might of ours can naught be done
Soon were our loss effected
But for us fights the Valiant One
Whom God Himself elected
Ask ye Who is this?
Jesus Christ it is
Of Sabbath Lord
And there's none other God
He holds the field forever

Though devils all the world should fill
All eager to devour us
We tremble not we fear no ill
They shall not overpower us
The world's prince may still
Scowl fierce as he will
He can harm us none
He's judged the deed is done
One little word can fell him

The Word they still shall let remain
Nor any thanks have for it
He's by our side upon the plain
With His good gifts and Spirit
And take they our life
Goods fame child and wife
Let these all be gone
They yet have nothing won
The kingdom our remaineth
~ Martin Luther
