When I survey the wondrous cross
Adapted by Edward Miller (1731 – 1807)
Words by Isaac Watts (1674 – 1748)
Sung by True Voices Evensong Choir
Recorded virtually in March 2021

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?

His dying crimson like a robe,
Spreads o’er his body on the Tree;
Then am I dead to all the globe,
And all the globe is dead to me.

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.

(Side note: I had thought it was time to let Sunday music go, but I guess I’m just not quite ready to do that. So I will try to continue for now, but I have given up searching for women composers, and my format from now on will simply be to copy and paste whatever the YouTube pages has for the notes.)
