WHEN I SURVEY THE WONDROUS CROSS - by Isaac Watts, 1707 Public Domain 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. 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. See, from His head, His hands, His feet, Sorrow and love flow mingled down; Did e'er such love and sorrow meet, Or thorns compose 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. Amen. NOTES: Please don't let the unfamiliar phrasing cause you to miss the power of this hymn. It is well worth spending the time to get the meaning clearly. This poem has been called the "greatest hymn ever written in the English language." Isaac Watts revolutionized public worship in his time, and this is his crowning achievement.More Christian songs like this at => http://www.loveallpeople.org/christmusic.html
