May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Galatians 6:1

WHEN I SURVEY THE WONDROUS CROSS
written by Isaac Watts

When I survey the wonderous 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 of Christ, my God;
All the Vain things that charm me most,
I sacrifice them to His .

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.
