Verse 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.
Verse 2: Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast, save in the death of Christ, my Lord; all the vain things that charm me most I sacrifice them to His blood.
Verse 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?
Verse 4: 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.
