I feel compelled to begin a series of publishing some of the hymns and Gospel songs that have stood the test of time and have provided a solace for peace in the battles of life, an affirmation of one's salvation and walk with Jesus Christ, and a comfort to those who know Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
Today, let us read and hear the hymn entitled, "When I Survey the Wondrous Cross."
I want you to listen to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir singing this great hymn with the accompaniment of a gigantic pipe organ. I hope you will be inspired and edified. Please Click Here to view and hear this noted choir sing this great hymn.
Lyrics to "When I Survey the Wondrous Cross"
Written by Issac Watts
- 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 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 a present far too small;
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.
