Commitment, Obedience, Repentance, The Cross of Christ, The Love of God, The Suffering of Christ, Trust



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 God
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 an offering far too small
Love so amazing, so divine
Demands my soul, my life, my all

  Sample Introduction

On the cross, mercy and wrath meet, love and sorrow flow down. The cross is both unfathomable and wondrous. Such love demands our lives, our souls, our all.
