song/hymn lyrics

When I Survey The Wondrous Cross (Rockingham)

English

Verse 1
When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of glory died
My richest gain I count but loss
And pour contempt on all my pride

Verse 2
Forbid 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

Verse 3
See from His head His hands His feet
Sorrow and love flow mingled down
Did ever such love and sorrow meet
Or thorns compose so rich a crown

Verse 4
ADDITIONAL VERSE
His dying crimson like a robe
Spreads o'er His body on the tree
Then I am dead to all the globe
And all the globe is dead to me

Verse 5
Were the whole realm of nature mine
That were an offering far too small
Love so amazing so divine
Demands my soul my life my all

Edward Miller | Isaac Watts
