A million lambs given in sacrifice could never pay the price for our sins. So Jesus came. For all of us. He brought grace and the opportunity to stand before the Father sinless and unashamed. Jesus Christ…the greatest gift the world has ever known…sung about in “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross” by Isaac Watts.
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.
