When I Survey The Wondrous Cross

D                  G        D
When I survey the wondrous cross
             Em         G      A
On which the Prince of glory died
D                  G          D
My richest gain I count but loss
             Em       G   A   D
And pour contempt on all my pride

(key of E)
E                    A         E
Forbid it Lord, that I should boast
             C#m       A        B
Save in the death of Christ my God
E                         A        E
All the vain things that charm me most
       C#m       A       B
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

Note: maj indicates major (written as Cmaj or just C), min indicates minor (written as Cmin or just Cm), sus indicates suspended, dim indicates diminished, aug indicates augmented. sus and sus4 are the same chords. Position 1, 2 and 3 indicate various positions on the fretboard. Numbers shown on right side of chart indicate fret number.
Add flavour to your music: Add a sus2 or a sus4 chord before a major or minor chord (Eg, Dsus4 before a D). Sometimes min7 chords (written as m7) can be substituted for major chords (Eg, Dm7 for F, or Am7 for C). Sometimes you can replace 7th chords with 9ths (Eg, replace D7 with D9)
