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 See, from His head, His feet, Sorrow and love flow mingled down; Did e’er such love and sorrow meet? Or thorns compose so rich a crown? … Continue reading

161 – Throned Upon the Awful Tree

1 Throned upon the awful tree, Lamb of God, Your grief we see. Darkness veils Your anguished face; None its lines of woe can trace.
