Down from His glory

Down from His glory,
  Ever living story,
My God and Savior came,
  And Jesus was His name.
Born in a manger,
  To His own a stranger,
A Man of sorrows, tears and agony.
  O how I love Him! How I adore Him!
My breath, my sunshine, my all in all!
The great Creator became my Savior,
  And all God’s fulness dwelleth in Him.
What condescension,
  Bringing us redemption;
That in the dead of night,
  Not one faint hope in sight,
God, gracious, tender,
  Laid aside His splendor,
Stooping to woo, to win, to save my soul.
Without reluctance,
  Flesh and blood His substance
He took the form of man,
  Revealed the hidden plan.
O glorious myst’ry,
  Sacrifice of Calv’ry,
And now I know Thou art the great “I AM.”

"Without reluctance,

Flesh and blood His substance

He took the form of man,

Revealed the hidden plan.

O glorious myst’ry,

Sacrifice of Calv’ry,

And now I know Thou art the great “I AM.”

Once Satan touched man, God stepped in to act... and this is according to God's sovereignty!

I just have to praise the Lord for the process He went through of incarnation, human living, crucifixion, resurrection, He became the Spirit and ascended as a Man! Now as the Spirit (2 Cor. 15:45b) He lives in us (Col. 1:27) spreading and making His home in all our hearts (Eph. 3:17) in order to build us up together to be His corporate dwelling place (Eph. 2:22) for His satisfaction and rest for all eternity (Rev. 21:2). "O how I love Him..."


This sounds a lot like "It's Now or Never" which was a pop song a few decades ago.

When I listen to this hyms, I desire to be with the Lord. I long to be with Him just to be in His presence. Father I thank for sacrificing Your only Son Just for me a sinner.

Although, my outward environment is currently consuming my outward man, I'm so, so refreshed by this song. All my situations go away when I consider how the Great Creator stepped out of glory to suffer in order to save us and bring us into His Glory.



Amen! Praise the Lord!


Just listened to my choir sing this. Always a delight.

This song really touched my heart.


Thank God for sending Jesus to be my Lord and Saviour. To God be the glory.

Thank you for the lyrics. I have the MP3 on my cell phone sung by Charles Billingsley--a magnificent recording. A few of the words I could not make out. With your help I can now enjoy it to the fullest!
