When I Survey the Wondrous Cross

Melody - "Hamburg"
Melody 2 - Hamburg (with repeats), Lowell Mason, 1824
Melody 3 - "Rockingham Old", Edward Miller. 1790; Seq. by Richard Jordan

Isaac Watts, 1707

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.
