Each verse of this contemporary hymn is based on one of the five "solas" of the Reformation. These are truths that all evangelical protestants should affirm: that in the Scriptures Alone, we learn of a salvation that comes by Grace Alone, through Faith Alone, in Christ Alone, and all for The Glory of God Alone. I pray that this song encourages and strengthens your faith as you meditate and sing of such wonderful truths. S.D.G
For Thine All Surpassing Glory
In Thy Word alone is for me
untold riches of Thy love
Yet the richest treasure from Thee
comes through Jesus’ precious blood
Grace alone saw our condition,
restless sinners; reconciled
not by might nor fond ambition.
Grace has met what Thou required!
True repentance Thou hast granted
Saints, no longer stand condemned
Faith to stand before Thee, righteous
freely given to defend
Object of all highest measure
once forsaken and despised.
Now Thy wrath and Thy good pleasure
Christ alone has satisfied!
For Thine all surpassing glory
all has come to pass in time
and from Thine eternal story
making all things praise Divine!
