Chris Tomlin – The Wonderful Cross lyrics

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 ever such love and sorrow meet
Or thorns compose so rich a crown

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

Were the whole realm of nature mine
That were an offering far too small
Love so amazing, so divine
Demands my soul, my life, my all

    The day God blessed this world! Jesus said, "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life; no man can come to the Father except through Me". Until this message is given to all the world, God's Will has not been done by His people.
    Scripture says, "God is not willing that any should perish. But without Christ, they will! Let us get this message so the world will get God's message and be saved! We may at least be found gathering in the sheaves one by one at His coming.
    He is coming again. Soon, and very soon. Will we be found wanting. Will be have oil in our lamps? Will we hear Him say,
    "Well done, good and faithful servant"?
    Our ears should yearn to here these precious words from our Lord!
