Verse 1:
           C  F              C
When I survey   the wondrous cross 
             Am     F          Gsus4
On which the Prince   of glory died, 
G             C/E  F           Am
   My richest gain   I count but loss 
Fmaj7          C    F     G      C   F   C/E   F
   And pour contempt   on all my pride.
Verse 2:
F            C    F                 C
See from His head,   His hands, His feet, 
           Am   F              Gsus4
Sorrow and love   flow mingled down.
G          G/F  C/E   F            Am
  Did e'er such love    and sorrow meet, 
F              C    F     G      C      F   C/E   F
  Or thorns compose    so rich a crown?
Verse 3:
Were the whole realm of nature mine, 
That were a offering far too small;
Love so ama zing, so divine, 
Demands my soul, my life, my all.
Chorus:
  C                          F
I thank You for the cross, I thank You for the cross, 
  C/E                         F
I thank You for the cross, my Lord.
  C                         F
I love You for the cross, I love You for the cross, 
  C/E                        F     C/G           C
I love You for the cross, my Lord.[Repeat][Last time]
F/A    Am     F
Hey,   oh.
C    F   Am    F
Hey, oh, oh.
I thank You for the 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.

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 offering far too small;
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.

I thank You for the cross, I thank You for the
cross,
I thank You for the cross, my Lord.
I love You for the cross, I love You for the
cross,
I love You for the cross, my Lord.
