A Mighty Fortress
    is more than brick and stone.
A Mighty Fortress
is the fierce loyalty of a friend
that defeats the cruelty
we often impose upon ourselves.
A Mighty Fortress
is a shield of grace
against the spears of judgment this world hurls.
A Mighty Fortress
is a tender love that provides a balm
which heals the scars this life can leave.
A Mighty Fortress
is the place where love and grace can make us brave again.
A Mighty Fortress is our God.
