VERSE 1:
It is by faith alone that we are justified;
by trusting in Christ's work for us, we're righteous in God's sight.
By faith alone, by faith we are justified.

VERSE 2:
It is by grace alone that we are freely saved,
for all our works could never earn the priceless gift God gave.
by grace alone, by grace we are freely saved.

VERSE 3:
The Word of God alone has final authority,
our conscience captive to His truth, not to men's thoughts or creeds.
God's Word alone, God's Word has authority.

VERSE 4:
It is in Christ alone that we have been redeemed;
tho' all of us were slaves to sin, Christ's blood has set us free.
In Christ alone, in Christ we have been redeemed.

VERSE 5:
The glory of God alone our prize and passion be,
for we were made to bring Him praise, now and eternally!
We live to praise the glory of God alone!
