Running to the Refuge {Day 30}: Worship and Rest and ... Giveaway Winner!

This is the final post in a month-long series.  Catch up on the whole series here.

Since I have given you a song each Sunday, I can't pass on doing that this week.  This hymn is a perfect match for a Refuge study, don't you think?  The first verse of this version is classic with an organ, then it gets a little jazzy.  Lyrics below, for your edification and to make you scroll a little further to find out if YOU are the winner of this month's giveaway!

A Mighty Fortress is Our God
by Martin Luther

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 power 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 powers, 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 forever.
