The truth of Scripture is meant not only to be studied—it’s meant also to be sung.
What the people of God believe shapes the way we worship, and how we worship shapes how we practice our faith. Church musicians and lyricists who have crafted hymns with deep biblical content and soul-stirring arrangements have been of inestimable importance in passing on the faith once delivered to the saints.
It was Martin Luther who said, “Next to the Word of God, the noble art of music is the greatest treasure in the world.” In line with the Protestant Reformation’s concern for worshipping God in spirit and in truth, we are grateful to announce a unique music project that is one of the highlights of Ligonier’s decades in ministry—Glory to the Holy One.
Glory to the Holy One is an album of sacred hymns and choral works written by Dr. R.C. Sproul and set to music by Jeff Lippencott, an award-winning composer whose compositions have been featured in film and television. Recorded in esteemed venues around the world, the new project provides the church with an offering of that which is good, true, and beautiful in the Christian faith.
Good theology sung well renews our minds, comforts our souls, and encourages us in the work of the kingdom. Our generation must recapture the church’s historic conviction that its anthems and hymns are not indifferent matters. And it is our responsibility to show the coming generations what good theology looks like in song.
Now available on CD and iTunes, Glory to the Holy One features lyrics drawn from Scripture and a lifetime of theological reflection. Our hope is that this project will show how beautiful music and the deep truths of God’s Word can be combined to exalt the Lord and edify His people.
