When I Survey the Wondrous Cross

When I survey the wondrous cross,
On which the Prince of glo - ry  died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride.

Forbit it, Lord, that I should boast,
Save in the death of Christ, my God;
All the vain things that charm me most,
I sacrifice them to His blood.

See, from His head, His hands, His feet,
Sorrow and love flow mingled down;
Did e'er such love and sorrow meet,
Or thorns comprise so rich a crown?

Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small;
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.

Lyrics: Isaac Watts, 1707
