A Quote by Martin Luther on age, body, christ, cruelty, darkness, devil, earth, failure, fear, gifts, god, jesus, life, losing, mortality, spirit, strength, truth, work, and world

A mighty fortress is our God, A bulwark never failing; Our helper He, amid the flood Of mortal ills prevailing. For still our ancient foe Doth seek to work us woe; His craft and pow'r are great, And, armed with cruel hate, On earth is not his equal. Did we in our own strength confide, Our striving would be losing, Were not the right Man on our side, The Man of God's own choosing. Dost ask who that may be? Christ Jesus, it is He; Lord Sabaoth His name, From age to age the same, And He must win the battle. And though this world, with devils filled, Should threaten to undo us, We will not fear, for God hath willed His truth to triumph through us. The prince of darkness grim - We tremble not for him; His rage we can endure, For lo! his doom is sure; One little word shall fell him. That word above all earthly pow'rs - No thanks to them - abideth; The Spirit and the gifts are ours Through Him Who with us sideth. Let goods and kindred go, This mortal life also; The body they may kill; God's truth abideth still, His kingdom is for ever. Amen.

A Quote by Martin Luther on eternity, hope, life, and world

All which happens through the whole world happens through hope. No husbandman would sow a grain of corn if he did not hope it would spring up and bring forth the ear; how much more we are helped on by hope in the eternal life.

A Quote by Martin Luther on art, god, music, prophets, and soul

Music is the art of the prophets, the only art that can calm the agitations of the soul; it is one of the most magnificent and delightful presents God has given us.

A Quote by Martin Luther on justice and peace

Peace is more important than all justice; and was not made for the sake of justice, but justice for the sake of peace.
