06. A Mighty Fortress

Life Light Up
by Christy Nockels



 

Our God is, a consuming fire,
A burning holy flame, with glory and freedom
Our God is, the only righteous judge
Ruling over us with kindness and wisdom

We will keep our eyes on You
We will set our hearts on You...

A mighty fortress is our God!
A sacred refuge is Your Name...
Your Kingdom is unshakable!
With You forever we will reign...

Our God is, jealous for His own
None could comprehend, His love and His mercy
Our God is exalted on His throne
High above the heavens
Forever He’s worthy...

We will keep our eyes on You
We will set our hearts on You...

A mighty fortress is our God!
A sacred refuge is Your Name...
Your Kingdom is unshakable!
With You forever we will reign

We will keep our eyes on You
We will keep our eyes on You
So we can set our hearts on You
Lord we will set our hearts on You!

A mighty fortress is our God!
A sacred refuge is Your Name...
Your Kingdom is unshakable!
With You forever we will reign


Written by Christy Nockels

Behind the Song:
“Every generation will inevitably struggle with the same question, “what is truth?” Songs are a beautifully simple way to engage people with Truth, that is, what is certain, real and everlasting. When we worship it is imperative to set before our minds and our hearts the attributes of God...His character, His grace and His mercy. This is why His word so powerfully leads us in worship! When we practice this, we set ourselves up to respond appropriately in His presence.

The idea and the heart around “A Mighty Fortress” is just that...to renew our minds of who God is and then respond with all eyes and hearts set on Him. We live in a cold, unpredictable world, but it is wonderfully alarming and freeing to sing Truth when all around us is crumbling. This song proclaims that we have protection and take refuge in God and His kingdom is an unshakable kingdom, one in which we will someday reign victorious because of Christ!

When I write and lead songs, often I imagine and picture a “generation” grasping who God is and responding to Him inside of and in spite of the current circumstances of our world and our surroundings. This song was written with a heart to support and cradle that kind of powerful revelation and response." - Christy Nockels
