Lyrics: When I survey the wondrous cross <br/>On which the Prince of glory died, <br/>My richest gain I count but loss, <br/>And pour contempt on all my pride. <br/> <br/>Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast <br/>Save in the death of Christ my God! <br/>All the vain things that charm me most <br/>I sacrifice them to his blood. <br/> <br/>See, from his head, his hands, his feet, <br/>Sorrow and love flow mingled down <br/>Did e’er such love and sorrow meet <br/>Or thorns compose so rich a crown? <br/> <br/>Were the whole realm of nature mine, <br/>That were an offering far too small, <br/>Love so amazing, so divine <br/>Demands my soul, my life, my all.
