A Mighty Fortress is Our God

Today's arrangement is the hymn, A Mighty Fortress is Our God, by Martin Luther. The lyrics are powerful:

A mighty fortress is our God, a bulwark never failing
our helper he amid the flood of mortal ills prevaling
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.

Thanks again for your comments. I hope that Piano by Joel motivates, inspires, and teaches listeners/readers to express themselves musically. If this blog/podcast has helped you, or if there is some musical resource lacking on the internet that Piano by Joel could possibly fill, please leave a comment or send me an e-mail.

Excellent job with "A Mighty Fortress is our God"!!! While listening I get a sense of serenity that I am indeed within the fortress of God and that it is all around me.

Keep up the wonderful ministry of music! I believe all who listen are indeed brought closer to our Savior!

This rendition was beautiful: contemplative and introspective. We can rest in our assurance of His strength.

What I'd like to hear is a second rendition to go along with the first. This one would be bold and triumphant, full of courage and valor.

"We will not fear, for God hath willed His truth to triumph through us. The Prince of Darkness grim, we tremble not for him. One little word shall fell him."

"Let goods and kindred go, this mortal life also. The body they may kill; God’s truth abideth still. His kingdom is forever."

Those final stanzas act as a call-to-arms for me. Give me something to march to. :)
