A Mighty Fortress Is Our God

"A Mighty Fortress Is Our God" is an old hymn from the early 16th century written by the reformer Martin Luther.  Luther wrote many hymns which helped to instruct people theologically and served to spread throughout Europe the truths restored by the Reformation.  This hymn is based on Psalm 46.  It has also been called "The Battle Hymn of the Reformation."  There is a reason that this hymn is still widely sung today nearly 500 years after it was written.  Here it is sung by Chris Rice.
