When I Survey the Wondrous Cross
melody

C          Em          Dm7          C 
When I survey the wondrous cross
   
         Am                 Dm7           D7    G                
On which the Prince of glory died,
               C            Em     Dm7            C               
My richest gain I count but loss,
       
Am                 Dm7        G7       C           
And pour contempt on all my pride.

   C              Em       Dm7           C        
Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast,
     Am            Dm7           D7        G        
Save in the death of Christ my God!

       C                Em                Dm7         C          

All the vain things that charm me most,
 
 Am   Dm7          G7           C         
I sacrifice them to His blood.

See from His head, His hands, His feet,
Sorrow and love flow mingled down!
Did eer 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.

Words: 1707 by Isaac Watts
Music:Hamburg 1824 by Lowell Mason

C         G               C      
O the wonderful cross

 C        G             C       

O the wonderful cross

Bids me come and die

Em                      G
  
And find that I may truly live

C         G               C      
O the wonderful cross

C          G              C      

O the wonderful cross

C             F
            
All who gather here

          Em                           G       
                   
By grace draw near and bless your name
