Reformation Hymn

All the doctrines of redemption, stand confirmed and stand alone.

Truths eternal and unaltered, freely offered, freely known.

Words that mark the road to heaven, grant us peace and end our strife,

turn us toward our Lord of glory, point the path for truth and life.

Scripture only, not tradition, true foundation flawless guide.

Human reason, vain and faithless, strokes my sin enables pride.

God’s own word brings true conviction, pierces doubt, and trains my mind.

Wisdom’s cry of understanding: “light and life to all the blind!”

 

Grace alone—God’s sovereign kindness, offered freely unto me

Gift of God, my only merit, all my hope and all my plea.

Grace unearned and unrequited lavished fully for my soul.

Not the deeds of saints or sinners, only mercy makes me whole.

Christ alone—the one Messiah, paid in full the ransom price.

Seated now, His work completed, hail the perfect sacrifice!

Earthly priests and human service, never ending, always flawed.

Only Christ can cleanse and hear us, grant us access to our God.

Faith alone—in Christ’s atonement, not my works can cleanse my sin

Filthy rags, my own attainments, cannot make me pure within.

Trusting in the words of heaven, only way to please my King.

Constant, living trust in Jesus, life the river, faith the spring.

God alone receives the glory—He designed salvation’s plan,

paid the price, and wrote the story, praise the King who rescues man.

Not one providence has faltered, no design has been recast.

Every knee will bow before Him, God, in Christ extolled at last!

    1. Not a new one, as of yet. But it fits half a dozen already written tunes. “Our Great Savior”, “Glorious Things of Thee are Spoken”, “Come Thou Fount”, “Brethren we have met to worship”, “Oh the Deep, Deep Love of Jesus”.
