656 A Mighty Fortress Is Our God

A mighty fortress is our God,
    A trusty shield and weapon;
He helps us free from ev’ry need
    That hath us now o’ertaken.
The old evil foe
Now means deadly woe;
    Deep guile and great might
    Are his dread arms in fight;
On 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 Sabaoth 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 overpow’r us.
This 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,
    Though these all be gone,
    Our vict’ry has been won;
The Kingdom ours remaineth.

681 Send, O Lord, Your Holy Spirit

Send, O Lord, Your Holy Spirit
    On Your servant now, we pray;
Let him prove a faithful shepherd
    That no lamb be led astray.
Your pure teaching to proclaim,
To extol Your holy name,
    And to feed Your lambs, dear Savior,
    Make his aim and sole endeavor.

You, O Lord, Yourself have called him
    For Your precious lambs to care;
But to prosper in his calling,
    He the Spirit’s gifts must share.
Give him wisdom from above,
Fill his heart with holy love;
    In his weakness, Lord, be near him,
    In his prayers, Good Shepherd, hear him.

Help, Lord Jesus, help him nourish
    All our children with Your Word
That in fervent love they serve You
    Till in heav’n their song is heard.
Boundless blessings, Lord, bestow
On his faithful toil below
    Till by grace to him be given
    His reward, the crown of heaven.
