A Song for the Reformation

This month we'll be singing a new song with a beautiful text by Bob Kauflin and Tim Chester, called, Reformation Song. As its title suggests, this song was written to help the church reflect on and rejoice in the glorious gospel that was recovered now 500 years ago in the Protestant Reformation.

The heart of the Protestant Reformation can be captured in five convictions: salvation is by God's Word alone, by faith alone, by grace alone, in Christ alone, and to the glory of God alone. You'll hear all of these on refrain in this song. 

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.

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.

Gloria, gloria, glory to God alone.
Gloria, gloria, glory to God alone.

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.

Gloria, gloria, glory to God alone.
Gloria, gloria, glory to God alone.

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.

Gloria, gloria, glory to God alone.
Gloria, gloria, glory to God alone.

Tim Chester and Bob Kauflin
