When I Survey

Posted | 5 comments

              G     C               G
When I sur- | vey | the wonderous | cross |

               Em       C          D
On which the | prince | of glory | died |

             G      C             Em
My richest | gain | I count but | loss |

C                G      D           G       D
And pour cont- | empt | 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 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?

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.
