Down from His glory

1
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.
2
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.
3
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.”

A beautiful song that can encourage us to serve God. The Great "I AM" in the song express His love through Jesus Christ, and Jesus commissioned the believers "Go ye...". This song is an inspiration while doing our part in the great plan of salvation.

This is my favorite song. I would like it sung at my funeral... He was the Great Creator and the Great I AM.

This song thrills my soul! I want to sing with abandon to my precious Lord!

It will take eternity to praise and thank Him!

So thankful that He gifts of putting words to music to those He has saved!

The words in this hymn sound simple, but they are so profound! I'm particularly touched by this utterance, "He took the form of man, revealed the hidden plan."

I believe the more we consider Christ's incarnation, the more we realise it is a mystery! The very God who became a man, Jesus, revealed His eternal plan to be expressed in man (Gen. 1:26)! Through man's actions, conduct, and words, God Himself can be expressed. Hallelujah!

Hallelujah. My God and Savior came. Without His coming into mankind. There is no hope for men. But He came! And Jesus was His name! Praise the Lord, the great Creator became my savior! He is worthy all our praises for eternity!
