Sunday's Coming

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.

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.

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.

Isaac Watts

  1. Charles Wesley reportedly said he would give up all his other hymns to have written this one...the greatest hymn ever written.
