Week 2 - Reformation Song

(WEEK 2)

This Sunday we will conclude the study of 1st Peter with Peter's words, "I have written briefly to you, exhorting and declaring that this is the true grace of God. Stand firm in it."

In August of 2019, we as a congregation learnt The Reformation Song. This song beautifully outlines what the reformers in the time of Martin Luther boldly claimed in the 1500s, and what became known as the "5 Solas": Scripture Alone; Faith Alone; Christ Alone; Grace Alone; to the Glory of God Alone.

Peter commends God's grace to us as truth and that we should stand firm in it. Enjoy singing this song and living your life this week to the glory of God alone.

Lyrics
VERSE 1
Your Word alone is solid ground, The mighty rock on which we build.
In every line the truth is found And every page with glory filled.

VERSE 2
Through faith alone we come to You; We have no merit we can claim.
Sure that Your promises are true; We place our hope in Jesus’ name.

CHORUS
Gloria, gloria, glory to God alone
Gloria, gloria, glory to God alone

VERSE 3
In Christ alone we’re justified; His righteousness is all our plea.
Your law’s demands are satisfied; His perfect work has set us free.

VERSE 4
By grace alone we have been saved, All that we are has come from You.
Hearts that were once by sin enslaved Now by Your pow’r have been made new.
