“When I survey the wondrous cross.” A message from Father Sam

Good and blessed morning,

I pray that God has continued to keep and bless you and your loved ones.

Isaac Watts’ greatest hymn is considered to be “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross,” which Watts wrote to be sung at communion services he conducted. Some people consider this hymn to be the greatest hymn in the English language. Indeed, this hymn is perfectly suited for a communion service, which is intended to memorialize the work of Jesus Christ, and “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross,” perhaps more than any other hymn, focuses one’s attention on the work of Jesus Christ and the relative insignificance of everything else.

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

Continue to strengthen your home altars by praying together as a family and sharing the word of God. This practice will produce strong individuals.
