When I survey the wondrous cross

1) When I survey the wondrous cross
on wich the Prince of glory died,
my richest gain I count but loss,
and pour cotempt on all my pride.

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.

3) See, from his head his hands, his feet,
sorrow and love flow mignled down.
Di e'er such love and sorrow meet,
or thorns compose so rich a crown?

4) 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.
