about

At St Thomas Crookes, part of our tradition as a church is to gather together on Ash Wednesday, to mark the beginning of the season of Lent. During this year’s ashing service, the worship team led the congregation in an acoustic version of Isaac Watts’ famous hymn, 'When I Survey The Wonderous Cross', intercut with the refrain of Phil Wickham's poetic 'You're Beautiful'.

That evening, the Spirit of God moved powerfully through that song, and we felt it was right and fitting to record a live version. And so, at the evening gathering on Sunday 13th March, 300 worshippers came together to lift their hands, hearts and voices to the living God.

As we enter Holy Week, our hope is that this track will enable you to reflect on the sacrifical death and all consuming love of Jesus Christ. We hope it will provide you with a focus for worship as you gather together in cells and clusters, and we hope it will present you with an opportunity to share the awesome love of God through social media and the power of music.

Track Name: When I Survey The Wondrous Cross/You're Beautiful
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 blood flow mingled down!
Did e’er such love and sorrow meet,
Or thorns compose so rich a crown?

I see you there hanging on a tree
You bled and then you died and then you rose again for me
Now you are sitting on Your heavenly throne
Soon we will be coming home,

You're beautiful
You’re beautiful

When we arrive at eternity's shore
Where death is just a memory and tears are no more
We'll enter in as the wedding bells ring
Your bride will come together and we'll sing

You're beautiful
You're beautiful

Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were an offering far too small;
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.

You're beautiful

I see your face, You’re beautiful,
You’re beautiful, You’re beautiful.
I see your face, You’re beautiful,
You’re beautiful, You’re beautiful.

Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were an offering far too small;
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.
