Worship – 0304 from WAV Technologies on Vimeo.

Last Sunday, the third song in our praise package was A Might Fortress by Christy Nockels.
I could barely get through the verse at the end because the truth of these words rang so powerfully in my heart while I was singing.

Over and over my heart claimed, He is our mighty fortress. He is our sacred refuge. His kingdom is unshakeable and yet often, I get caught up in the busyness of life and forget to keep my eyes on Him.

What an amazing reminder that He never forgets me. He chases me with His kindness, His mercy, His wisdom and His freedom.
What a privilege to worship such an amazing God.


I’ve included the words if you desire to listen (or better yet, sing) along. It’s the 3rd song.

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 keep our eyes 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 keep our eyes on You

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!
