S.D.G.

“It was the habit of Johann Sebastian Bach to write, at the bottom tom of each of his musical compositions, the initials “S.D.G.” to remind himself and everyone who played his compositions that the glory was God’s alone. “S.D.G.,” of course, stands for the Latin phrase Soli Deo gloria, which means “Glory to God alone.” Bach didn’t write simply “D.G.”-“Glory to God.” It always had to be “S.D.G.”-“Glory to God alone.” That’s what we affirm at the end of the Lord’s Prayer. We acknowledge that we have no glory in us, that God is glorious beyond our ability to express, and that He is never required to share His glory with men.” -R.C Sproul
