Craig Curry has masterfully reworked this beloved hymn with a dramatic melody and accompaniment. Opening with an optional alto solo and gradually adding voices with each verse, the changes in texture and color are rich, indeed, and the effect is very moving. “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross” is such an important hymn throughout the church year. Try this wistful arrangement during Lent or for your next communion service.

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.
I pour contempt on all my pride.

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 to His blood.
I sacrifice them to His blood.

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.
Demands my soul, my life, my all

Demands my soul, my life, my all.
