When I Survey the Wondrous Cross-uccpako

Hymns

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 the 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.

  1. Things brings back so many great memories.

    My mother used to sing and several of her favorites were about the cross.

    It meant so much to her to be able to share the Word with her singing. Her ministry was humble with kindness that is scarce in these days.

    Thank you for sharing and the work you are doing.

    Blessings.

    1. Good to know that Robert.  I know a mother has a great influence to her children and I believe you owe such characteristic your mother possessed.

      The cross has an amazing message to anyone and it’s not simply a doing of a common person, it is a Godly act that surpassed human capability.

      I do hope you can sing also one of the hymns that mention about the cross.

      Thank you very much for dropping by and leaving a comment.
