154. When I survey the wondrous cross

L.M.

Rockingham:

Second Supplement to Psalmody in Miniature;

harm. Edward Miller, 1790

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.

Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast,

Save in the cross 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 an offering far too small;

Love so amazing, so divine,

Demands my soul, my life, my all.
