A Mighty Fortress is Our God


A Mighty Fortress Is Our God” (Known in German as “Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott”) is one of the best known hymns by the reformer Martin Luther, a prolific hymnodist. Luther wrote the words and composed the melody sometime between 1527 and 1529. It has been translated into English at least seventy times and also into many other languages. The words are mostly original, though the first line paraphrases that of Psalm 46.



“This is one of my very favorite hyms! The message is powerful, and when I sing it, that power surges through every fiber of my being. If you know me well, you know that I am a huge fan of Martin Luther. I had the privilege of reading the autobiography The Life and Times of Martin Luther by J.H Merle D’Aubigne. It read like a fast-paced, high-energy major motion picture and it was life-changing for me. I also had the privilege of visiting the church where he spoke in Germany among a few other choice locations in 1989 right before the fall of the Berlin wall. The story of the Reformation is one that seems to be lost over time. I pray those who seek to know a deeper walk will search out this book and study this fascinating and world-changing era.” — Stephanie
