When I Survey the Wondrous Cross

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.

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.

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?

Beneath the Cross of Jesus

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.

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.

Throughout These Lenten Days and Nights

Throughout these Lenten days and nights
we turn to walk the inward way,
where, meeting Christ, our guided light,
we live in hope til Easter day.

The pilgrim Christ, the Lamb of God,
who found in weakness greater power,
embraces us, though lost and flawed,
and leads us to His rising hour.

And though the road is hard and steep,
the Spirit ever calls us on
through Calvary’s dying, dark and deep,
until we see the coming dawn.

Jesu, Jesu, Fill Us With Your Love

Jesu, Jesu, fill us with Your love;
show us how to serve
the neighbours we have from You.
Kneels at the feet of His friends,
silently washes their feet,
master who acts as a slave to them.

Jesu, Jesu,fill us with Your love;
show us how to serve
the neighbours we have from You.
Neighbours are rich and poor,
varied in colour and race;
neighbours are near and far away.

Jesu, Jesu,fill us with Your love;
show us how to serve
the neighbours we have from You.
These are the ones we should serve;
these are the ones we should love;
all these are neighbours to us and You.

Jesu, Jesu, fill us with Your love;
show us how to serve
the neighbours we have from You.
Kneel at the feet of our friends,
silently washing their feet;
this is the way we should live with You.

Jesu, Jesu, fill us with Your love;
show us how to serve
the neighbours we have from You.

My Song is Love Unknown

My song is love unknown,
my Saviour’s love to me,
love to the loveless shown,
that they might lovely be.
Oh who am I that for my sake
my Lord should take frail flesh and die?

He came from his blest throne
salvation to bestow,
but we made strange, and none
the longed-for Christ would know.
But oh, my Friend, my Friend indeed,
who at my need His life did spend.

Here might I stay and sing,
no story so divine;
never was love, dear King,
never was grief like thine.
This is my friend in whose sweet praise
I all my days could gladly spend.
