HYMN 299

H.C 186 L.M (FE 320) 
“But God frbid that I should glory
save in the cross of our Lord Jesus
Christ" - Gal 6:14 

1.  WHEN I survey the wondrous cross

     On which the Prince of Glory die 

     My richest gain I count but loss 

     And pour contempt on all my pride.

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.

3.  See, from His head, His hand His feet 

     Sorrow and love flow mingled down 

     Did e'er such love and sorrow meet 

     Of thorns compose so rich a crown.

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.  Amen
