Oh The Wondrous Cross
Key of G, calypso version of
"When I Survey The Wondrous Cross"
(lyrics of verses by Isaac Watts)

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

Oh the wondrous cross
(oh the wondrous cross)

Source of life to me
(source of life to me)

Jesus paid the cost
(Jesus paid the cost)
To set this sinner free !

Forbid it Lord that I should boast
Save in the cross of Christ, my God
All the vain things that charm me most
I sacrifice them to His blood (chorus)

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? (chorus)

Were the whole realm of nature mine
That were a tribute far too small
Love so amazing, so divine
Demands my soul, my life, my all (chorus 2x)

He set this sinner free, oh
He set this sinner free, oh
He set this sinner free !!!



I would like to request permission to use the following songs for a Music in Religion Day
to be held at the Anglican Church of St. Stephen in Toronto, Canada. 
These special Days are held every year,
where choir directors introduce new music to congregations.

I am the organist/choir director at the church,
and I had heard the music when I attended a Christian concert last year. 
The pieces are:    "In The Splendor of Your Courts",
"Bless the Lord (Calypso)" and "Oh The Wondrous Cross"

(Arlene, from Canada)

I have been looking for fresh ideas for music to sing and 
I found that in "Oh The Wondrous Cross" in calypso style.
Thank you for your music.  Bless you.

Thank you for allowing me to use your music 
"Oh The Wondrous Cross" on my site. (Marie)



"I recently moved to this town of 4,000 at the end of the road going North 
to enjoy God's splendid nature: Ely, Minnesota.  I joined Grace Lutheran Church... 
and have been very active with special music in our congregation.  I watch the faces light up 
when a non- traditional tune is played and then followed by a round of applause. 
I found your site and tried out
"Oh The Wondrous Cross";  it was a hit. 

Your songs provide the scripture these folks like to hear, but in a 
wonderful new arrangement that gets them bouncing when they leave the service. 
Thank You, thank you. 
(Karin, from Minnesota)

A special thanks to InHymn.com
for including this song on their wonderful site
