742. WHEN I SURVEY THE WONDROUS CROSS

 

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 Lord!
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

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

 

VERSE 5

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

 

124. LA CRUZ EXCELSA

 

La cruz excelsa al contemplar
Do Cristo allí por mí murió
De todo cuanto estimo aquí
Lo más precioso es su amor

 

VERSO 2

No busco gloria ni honor
Sino en la cruz de mi Señor
Las cosas que me encantan más
Las sacrifico por su amor

 

VERSO 3

De su cabeza, manos, pies
Preciosa sangre corrió allí
Corona vil de espinas fue
La que Jesús llevó por mí

 

(Slightly different arrangement from web, easier to sing)

De su cabeza, manos, pies
Preciosa sangre allí corrió
Corona vil de espinas fue
La que Jesús por mí llevó

 

VERSO 4

El mundo entero no será
Dádiva digna de ofrecer
Amor tan grande y sin igual
En cambio, exige todo el ser
