“Down From His Glory” with full orchestra and two violins and cello.
Composer William Booth who is the grandson of William Booth, the founder of the Salvation Army. In 1921 he wrote the words to Down From His Glory. These powerful lyrics became even more intense when he adapted them to the tune of Edwardo Di Capua’s famous O SOLE MIO. To sing this song as a member of a congregation or a choir is uplifting. To listen to it sung by a power soloist or duet is a spine-tingling thrill.

Not one faint hope in sight,
God, gracious, tender,
Laid aside His splendor,

Sacrifice of Calv’ry,
And now I know Thou art the great
