When I Survey the Wondrous Cross

  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.
  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 mingled down:
    did 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.
