Glory To His Name

Elisha Hoffman was a minister who cared for the poor and down trodden. He was also a prolific gospel hymn writer. In his lifetime, he wrote over 2,000 Gospel songs and edited about 50 song books.

Although Jesus died on the cross, where He shed His precious blood. It was not the cross that killed Him, rather it was He himself that gave up His own life for our sins, obeying the Father.

Jn 10:17-18 says:
“Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.”

Down at the cross where my Savior died,
Down where for cleansing from sin I cried,
There to my heart was the blood applied;
Glory to His Name!

Glory to His Name, glory to His Name:
There to my heart was the blood applied;
Glory to His Name!

I am so wondrously saved from sin,
Jesus so sweetly abides within;
There at the cross where He took me in;
Glory to His Name!

Oh, precious fountain that saves from sin,
I am so glad I have entered in;
There Jesus saves me and keeps me clean;
Glory to His Name!

Come to this fountain so rich and sweet,
Cast thy poor soul at the Savior’s feet;
Plunge in today, and be made complete;
Glory to His Name!

All Glory to the Lamb of God!
