Down at the Cross

Representative Text

1 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!

2 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! [Refrain]

3 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! [Refrain]

4 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! [Refrain]


1 Junto a la cruz do murió el Salvador,
por mis pecados clamaba al Señor.
¡Qué maravilla, Jesús me salvó!
¡A su nombre gloria!

¡A su nombre gloria!
¡A su nombre gloria!
¡Qué maravilla, Jesús me salvó!
¡A su nombre gloria!

2 Junto a la cruz recibí el perdón,
limpio en su sangre está mi corazón;
allí en la cruz el Señor me acogió.
¡A su nombre gloria! [Estribillo]

3 Junto a la cruz hay un manantial
de agua de vida, cual puro cristal;
allí Jesús me limpió de mal.
¡A su nombre gloria!

4 Ven sin tardar a la cruz, pecador;
allí te espera del buen Salvador;
allí de Dios hallarás el amor.
¡A su nombre gloria! [Estribillo]
