A modern hymn based on the Five Solas of the Protestant Reformation. Each of the five verses offers a poetic and worshipful expression of one of the five "solas":
1. Scripture alone (sola Scriptura)
2. By Grace Alone (sola gratia)
3. By Faith Alone (sola fide)
4. In Christ Alone (solus Christus)
5. To the Glory of God Alone (soli Deo gloria)
By God alone I’m saved from my sin.
To God alone be glory! Amen.
The Word of God is truth revealed for man to know God’s law;
The standard of reality, the Bible guides in all.
There is no other book divine, no other sacred tome,
The truth of God lies nowhere else but in His Word alone.
Salvation is a gift of God, so may no human boast:
By grace alone have saints been saved and blessed to uttermost!
No, nothing else can save my soul, my sin that can atone,
The sinner, now redeemed by God, is saved by grace alone.
The works of nat’ral man cannot appease the wrath of God,
Through Christian faith the Savior saves and stays the Father’s rod.
For God could not my sin forgive through merits of my own,
The guilty wretch is justified by God through faith alone.
When first the sin of man appeared, the Lord withdrew His hand;
Thus Christ became a man and died to bridge the awful span;
No other One could mediate between me and God’s throne,
The wayward son, restored to God, finds hope in Christ alone.
O praise the God who saves the weak, O glorify His name,
Let all creation with one voice His wondrous deeds proclaim!
Who else deserves the laud, the praise? It is not flesh and bone.
May all of life e’er glorify our King, our God, alone!
