I wrote a paper in my graduate studies, analyzing "When I Survey The Wondrous Cross"--and I can still remember how God profound spoke to me during the research for that paper.
I agree with the theologians and scholars who say this great anthem, written by Isaac Watts more than 200 years ago, is probably the greatest piece of poetry set to music in the English Language....These words grip my heart:
"Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small!
Love, so amazing, so divine,
Demands my life, my soul, my all!"
