Luther Quotes #11 – On Salvation By Grace Alone

Further recommended reading on this subject:

1. A discussion on the appearance of "salvation by grace" in the Old Testament Scriptures:

'Grace in the Old Testament' by Art Farstad:

2. A hymn jointly authored by Philip Doddridge and Augustus Toplady, 'Grace 'Tis A Charming Sound.'

1 Grace, ’tis a charming sound,

Harmonious to mine ear; Heaven with the echo shall resound, And all the earth shall hear.

2 Grace first contrived the way To save rebellious man; And all the steps that grace display Which drew the wondrous plan.

3 Grace first inscribed my name In God’s eternal book; ’Twas grace that gave me to the Lamb, Who all my sorrows took.

4 Grace led my roving feet To tread the heavenly road; And new supplies each hour I meet, While pressing on to God.

5 Grace taught my soul to pray And made mine eyes o’erflow; ’Twas grace which kept me to this day, And will not let me go.

6 Grace all the work shall crown, Through everlasting days; It lays in heaven the topmost stone, And well deserves the praise.

7 O let Thy grace inspire My soul with strength divine My all my powers to Thee aspire, And all my days be Thine.

[ NB. Doddridge penned verses 1,2,4&6; Toplady added the others ].
