When I Survey the Wondrous Cross

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: 8.8.8.8 Appears in 1,763 hymnals Scripture: Philippians 3:10 Lyrics: 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. 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 through his blood. 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? 4 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.

Hymn 109

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: 8.8.8.8 Appears in 205 hymnals Scripture: Philippians 3:7-9 First Line: No more, my God, I boast no more Lyrics: No more, my God, I boast no more Of all the duties I have done; I quit the hopes I held before, To trust the merits of thy Son. Now, for the love I bear his name, What was my gain I count my loss; My former pride I call my shame, And nail my glory to his cross. Yes, and I must and will esteem All things but loss for Jesus' sake: O may my soul be found in him, And of his righteousness partake! The best obedience of my hands Dares not appear before thy throne; But faith can answer thy demands By pleading what my Lord has done.

Jesus, Priceless Treasure

Author: Johann Franck; Catherine Winkworth Meter: 6.6.5.6.6.5.7.8.6 Appears in 113 hymnals Scripture: Philippians 3:8 Lyrics: 1 Jesus, priceless treasure, source of purest pleasure, friend most sure and true: long my heart was burning, fainting much and yearning, thirsting, Lord, for you. Yours I am, O spotless Lamb, so will I let nothing hide you, seek no joy beside you! 2 Let your arms enfold me: those who try to wound me cannot reach me here. Though the earth be shaking, every heart be quaking, Jesus calms my fear. Fires may flash and thunder crash; yea, though sin and hell assail me, Jesus will not fail me. 3 Hence, all worldly treasure! Jesus is my pleasure, Jesus is my choice. Hence, all empty glory! What to me your story told with tempting voice? Pain or loss or shame or cross shall not from my Savior move me, since he chose to love me. 4 Banish thoughts of sadness, for the Lord of gladness, Jesus, enters in; though the clouds may gather, those who love the Savior still have peace within. Though I bear much sorrow here, still in you lies purest pleasure, Jesus, priceless treasure!

Beneath the Cross of Jesus

Author: Elizabeth C. Clephane Meter: 7.6.8.6.8.6.8.6 Appears in 448 hymnals Scripture: Philippians 3:7-8 Lyrics: 1 Beneath the cross of Jesus I fain would take my stand, the shadow of a mighty rock within a weary land, A home within a wilderness, a rest upon the way, from the burning of the noontide heat and the burden of the day. 2 Upon that cross of Jesus my eyes at times can see the very dying form of one who suffered there for me, and from my humbled heart with shame two wonders I confess: the wonders of redeeming love, and my own lovelessness. 3 I take, O cross, thy shadow for my abiding place: I ask no other sunshine than the sunshine of thy face; content unto the world to die, to know no gain or loss, my only shame a sinful heart, my glory all, the cross.
