Finding Faith And Hope With "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God"

Posted on May 19, 2020

As we approach Memorial Day and Independence Day in the United States, there is an age-old song nearly 500 years old that rises into our times of worship in both modern and traditional forms. "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God" is one of the best-known hymns by Martin Luther, initially composed in 1529, and inspired by Psalm 46. The words remind us to be full of faith in God amidst the challenges we face -- "the flood of mortal ills prevailing". The words ring true in the face of our enemies, whether they be human, spiritual, or even medical. Take note, all the songs from the PraiseCharts modern version of this song are free for a limited time.

Get ready for an Easter week unlike you have ever experienced before. This year will not be remembered for high-end productions with smoke, lights and live animals.

That is exactly what the Gettys have shown us with their weekly online hymn sings over the last few weeks. Truth be told, the chaos that unfolds around their piano is rather endearing. Thousands from all around the world are tuning in to their highly unproduced sing-alongs.

Song Story

What is your only comfort in life and in death? For centuries, believers have learned the Christian faith beginning with that question. It’s the first article in the Heidelberg Catechism of 1563. Why start there? Because death is our common fate. Unless Jesus returns first, we will all die. To find comfort in life, we must know how we can face death. Hope comes only in trusting the one who died to take the curse of death and who crushed the power of death by His resurrection. “Christ has been raised from the dead” (1 Cor 15:20). That is the only statement that can transform how we live each day and how we prepare for our earthly life to end.

The hope of the resurrection spurs us to sing. That’s why a group of songwriters from Getty Music wrote the modern hymn “Christ Our Hope in Life and Death.” Like the Heidelberg Catechism that inspired it, this song is honest about death. There is no need to shrink back from mentioning death in our hymns because we know the Living One who has conquered death forever. The Christian can sing hallelujah because Christ assures us of our glorious future. Now and ever, we confess: “I am not my own, but belong—body and soul in life and in death—to my faithful Savior, Jesus Christ.
