from "Hymns of the Father"

 

Intro x2/Interludes:    C       C/F


C                                    
A mighty fortress is our God,

C/F                          C

A bulwark never failing;
                                                
Our helper He, amid the flood

C/F                         C      

Of mortal ills prevailing;
       Am       (Dsus2    G)
For still our ancient foe  

           C          F          Am

doth seek to work us woe;
      Am                               G   
His craft and power are great,

          Am     Dm            Em   

and armed with cruel hate,
Am    C       F          G   C
On earth is not his equal.

 


C                                            (F  G   C) 
And though this world, with devils filled,

                                     G     C

Should threaten to undo us,
C                                 (F    G      C)    
We will not fear, for God hath willed

                                        G         C

His truth to triumph through us:
       Am           D             G     
The Prince of Darkness grim,

         C           F         Am

we tremble not for him;
      Am           D        G  
His rage we can endure,

     Am       Dm       Em   

for lo, his doom is sure,
Am    C       F              G   C
One little word shall fell him.

 


C                                (F   G   C)     
That word above all earthly powers,

                                    G     C

No thanks to them abideth;
C                            (F      G     C)    
The Spirit and the gifts are ours,

                                                G     C

Through him who with us sideth.
       Am            D         G     
Let goods and kindred go,

        C         F      Am

This mortal life also:
      Am      D          G  
The body they may kill:

         Am       Dm     Em   

God's truth abideth still,
Am  C          F     G   C
His kingdom is forever.

A Mighty Fortress Is Our God Chords (Acoustic)
(Capo 6)

 

                

A mighty fortress is our God,

A bulwark never failing;

G

Our helper He, amid the flood

Of mortal ills prevailing;

       Em          A          D   

For still our ancient foe 

           G            C          Em

doth seek to work us woe;

       Em            A               D   

His craft and power are great,

           Em      Am          Bm  

and, armed with cruel hate,

Em    G         C          D   G

On earth is not his equal.

 

 

G

Did we in our own strength confide, 

Our striving would be losing

G                                         D    C     G

Were not the right Man on our side,

The Man of God’s own choosing:

        Em            A              D  

Dost ask who that may be?

            G       C      Em

Christ Jesus, it is He;

        Em       A          D        

Lord Sabaoth His name,

          Em       Am        Bm  

from age to age the same,

Em  G             C            D   G

And He must win the battle.

 

 

G

And though this world, with devils filled,

Should threaten to undo us,

G                                   D     C      G

We will not fear, for God hath willed

His truth to triumph through us:

       Em            A               D    

The Prince of Darkness grim,

       G           C         Em

we tremble not for him;

       Em          A           D  

His rage we can endure,

      Em       Am       Bm  

for lo, his doom is sure,

Em    G        C               D   G

One little word shall fell him.
