-When I Survey The Wondrous Cross

When I Survey The Wondrous Cross

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 e’er 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.

By Isaac Watts (1674-1748)

“God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ,
by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.”
 Galatians 6:14

  1. The Cross is the Guardian of the whole earth; the Cross is the beauty of the church. The Cross is the strength of kings; the Cross is the support of the faithful. The Cross is the glory of angels and a wound to demons.

    ~ Exapostilarion of the Cross, Tone Two
