"When I Survey the Wonderous Cross" is a well known hymn by Isaac Watts.

Words

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 ever 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
