Sola Fide.

I first heard this song On Faith Alone on the radio and quickly came to love it. I would like to take this opportunity to share it with all the readers of DefCon.

Not only is the music beautiful, but the lyrics (which I’ve included below the video) are biblically solid–not the sappy, happy, clappy, hip-hop, bubblegum pop that so fills the Christian airwaves of today.

This song ranks right up there as one of my new favorites alongside At The Crossroads. I am certain you will enjoy it and it will be a blessing to you this Lord’s day. Sola Fide!

On faith alone I stand.
There is no higher ground.
I give all I am.
for my soul will never doubt.
Though the storms they may be raging.
You have always held my hand.
To thy cross my heart will always cling.
On faith alone I stand.
On faith alone I live.
Not in what I say or do,
But the blood you freely give covers me and makes me new.
For your love is ever with me.
Lord Jehovah great I am.
O my trust grows stronger on my knees.
On faith alone I stand.
On faith alone I stand.
When I reach my final breath,
and I fall into your arms.
I’ll proclaim with no regret.
On faith alone,
sola fide,
sola fide,
sola fide.
On faith alone I stand.
On faith alone I stand.
On faith alone I stand.

  1. It is a beautiful song isn’t it? I recommend letting it play again but just listen to it without watching it. Sometimes visuals can be distracting. I fell in love with the song on the radio before ever seeing the video.

    But I must say, the video is very good too. Well done.

    It is entitled On Faith Alone and is sung by Robert Pierre. You’ll find all you need to know using an internet search engine like this one.

  2. Jay,

    Thank you for your kind words.

    Do you realize that Christians are the only people in the world that can sing this song and rejoice in its message?

    Roman Catholics can’t. Muslims can’t.
    Mormons can’t. Hindus can’t. Jehovah’s Witnesses can’t.

    They (like every other faith on the planet except Biblical Christianity) preach a works-based salvation.

    If only they would one day come to a point where they stop trusting in their own merit and instead trust in the merit of the One who alone can save them. Only then would they be able to truly rejoice and say, “On faith alone I stand; On faith alone I live; Not in what I say or do; But the blood you freely give covers me and makes me new.”

  3. This is a pretty song, I like the Biblical message in it! Sola Fide!

    A couple of observations, this is a young man, pre-puberty, I wonder what his voice is going to be like in a short decade? I hope it matures well. Secondly, is part of this video shot in front of the castle that Luther was at?

  4. Dan,

    Yes. The biblical message is good and the song is beautiful.

    Yes. It is a young man. Every time I heard it on the radio I thought it was a woman. As you can imagine this made it very difficult to find info on the song. I then discovered it on YouTube and saw that she was a he.

    I don’t know. I have no idea where the video was filmed.

  5. Dear Rachel:

    I especially like the part when he sings “Sola Fide.” It’s at that point in the song that I am reminded that it is in faith alone; that it’s of nothing I can say or do.

    It’s also an anthem that (as I said in a previous comment) only Christians can sing and rejoice in. Every other religion teaches that (wicked and sinful) man must work his way to God (as if anything good can come from a wicked and sinful creature) when the debt was already paid by the only One who was infinitely perfect and capable of providing the perfect sacrifice. What more can we possibly add to that perfect, priceless sacrifice?

    Offering a perfect and holy God our filthy rags (Isaiah 64:6) is an insult, and like Cain, is not an acceptable sacrifice.
