Soli Deo gloria

“Glory to God alone”

The person who exhibited this idea best, in my view, was Johann Sebastian Bach. At the end of many pieces of his music he composed he would append this phrase. His music had been empowered by the Creator and all glory should go to Him.

For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. 17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 
Colossians 1:16&17

Lord, our Lord,
    how majestic is your name in all the earth!
Psalm 8 1&9

 “In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a son of man, coming with the clouds of heaven.He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into his presence.  He was given authority, glory and sovereign power; all nations and peoples of every language worshiped him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and his kingdom is one that will never be destroyed.
Daniel 7:13 &14
