Calvinism, the Solas, and Hymns

Today I was thinking about various hymns and how many of them could be used as chapter titles to books on Calvinism and the 5 solas of the Reformation. I told my fellows #prosapologian channel rats that I would post some. Feel free to add some of your own on the comments thingy :D

Total Depravity- Tis Not that I Did Choose Thee, God Be Merciful to Me

Unconditional Election- Tis Not that I Did Choose Thee

Particular Redemption- There Is Power in the Blood, The Blood Will Never Lose Its Power (yes, I've heard Arminians sing these songs...)

Effectual Calling- I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say, Amazing Grace

Perseverance of the Saints- Before the Throne of God Above, Jesus What a Friend for Sinners, O Love that Will Not Let Me Go, Blessed Assurance

Sovereignty of God (the unofficial sixth point)- God Moves in a Mysterious Way, Whate'er My God Ordains is Right

Sola Gratia- Amazing Grace, Not What My Hands Have Done

Sola Fide- Jesus Paid it All, Before the Throne of God Above, The Solid Rock

Solus Christus- The Solid Rock, Rock of Ages

Sola Scriptura- How Firm a Foundation, Holy Bible Book Divine

Soli Deo Gloria- To God Be the Glory, Glory Be to the Father, Before Jehovah's Awful Throne

"Props" to irRational (Carrie Gambill) who helped me with several of these :D
