Down From His Glory

with 4 comments

I long to hear songs with Doctrine in them again. Songs about the Godhead, Baptism in Jesus Name, and The Blood, to name a few. Here is my second post in the old song series.

This beloved song, which so gloriously articulates the revelation of the Mighty God in Christ, has inspired generations of Oneness Pentecostals and was perhaps Bro. Booth-Clibborn’s most enduring contribution to our movement.

William Booth-Clibborn was the grandson of General William Booth, British founder of the Salvation Army.


Down From His Glory

by William Booth-Clibborn

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.

Oh, 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 fullness 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.”
