Fortress

A fortress is

  • a large fortified place; a fort or group of forts, often including a town; a citadel.
  • any place of exceptional security; a stronghold.

The word fortress these days has changed to include strongholds in a more figurative sense – Martin Luther used the word ‘fortress’ to describe unfailing spiritual support when he wrote, “A mighty fortress is our God.”

Martin Luther was right though wasn’t he? God is our fortress because he is our strength in times of trouble, our rock, and our never-failing friend. He is our fortress, our strength, our God.

 Our God is, a consuming fire, 
 A burning holy Flame, with glory and freedom
 Our God is, the only righteous judge,
 Ruling over us with kindness and wisdom

 We will keep our eyes on You
 We will keep our eyes on You
 
 A mighty fortress is our God
 A sacred refuge is Your Name
 Your Kingdom is unshakable
 With You forever we will reign
 
 Our God is, jealous for His own
 None could comprehend, His love and His mercy
 Our God is exalted on His throne
 High above the heavens
 Forever He's worthy…

 We will keep our eyes on You
 We will keep our eyes on You
 
 A mighty fortress is our God
 A sacred refuge is Your Name
 Your Kingdom is unshakable
 With You forever we will reign

 We will keep our eyes on You
 We will keep our eyes on You
 So we can set our hearts on You
 Lord we will set our hearts on You!

 A mighty fortress is our God
 A sacred refuge is Your Name
 Your Kingdom is unshakable
 With You forever we will reign

 Our God is, a consuming fire, 
 A burning holy Flame, with glory and freedom
