Matthew West - The Wonderful Cross Lyrics

hen 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

Safe in the death of Christ my guide

All living things that charm me most

I sacrifice them to his blood



O the wonderful cross, O the wonderful cross

Bids me come and die and find that I may truly live



See from his head, his hands, his feet

Sorrow and love flow mingled down

Did ever such love and sorrow meet

Or thorns compose so rich a crown



O the wonderful cross, O the wonderful cross

All who gather here by grace draw near and bless

Your name



Were the whole realm of nature mine

That were an offering far to small

Love so amazing, so divine

Demands my soul, my life, my all



O the wonderful cross, O the wonderful cross

Bids me come and die and find that I may truly live

O the wonderful cross, O the wonderful cross

All who gather here by grace draw near and bless

Your name
