*Hymn of Praise          “Down at the Cross”       by John H. Stockton
Down at the cross
Where my savior died
Down where for cleansing
From sin I cried
There to my heart
Was the blood applied, singin'
Glory to His name
Glory to His name
Glory to His name
There to my heart 
was the blood applied, singin'
Glory to His name, His name
