60 When I Survey the Wondrous Cross
(HAMBURG. L. M.)
Isaac Watts, 1707 Gregorian Chant
Arranged by Lowell Mason, 1824
 
1.

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 sor- row 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 a- maz - ing, so di - vine, Demands my soul, my life, my all.Amen
