Redeemed Hymn 147 – When I Survey the Wondrous Cross

“But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our lord Jesus Christ” -Gal 6:14

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 sorrow meet,

Or thorns compose so rich a crown?


4 Were the-whole realm of nature mine,

That were an offering far too small

Love so amazing, so divine,

Demands my soul, my life, my all.
