Fortress is an image taken from the Psalm 18 and 2 Samuel 22, where David prays to God for deliverance from Saul, but with much imagery regarding what God is to him in his own experience. Psalm 18:1-6–
1 I love You, O Jehovah, my strength.
2 Jehovah is my crag and my fortress and my Deliverer; My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my high retreat.
3 I called upon Jehovah, who is worthy of praise, And from my enemies I was saved.
4 The cords of death encompassed me; And the torrents of destruction assailed me.
5 The cords of Sheol surrounded me; The snares of death confronted me.
6 In my distress I called upon Jehovah And cried out to my God. He heard my voice from His temple, And my cry before Him came to His ears.

This image was the cover artwork for the song, I Love You, O Lord, from the album, If Arrows Fly (2019) by Chords of a Man.
