When I Survey the Wondrous Cross
Isaac Watts, pub.1707

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 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.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day!! A four-leaf clover for you

I thought I'd skip right over the Ides of March. On this date, March 15 in 44 BC, Julius Caesar was assassinated. That day always scares me. Why, I don't know.

I picked this clump of clovers beside the sidewalk leading to downtown Killarney, Ireland.

There was only one with four leaves. You will have to find it, I did not pick it. Isn't picking four-leaf clovers bad luck? Later in Scotland I was able to find another four-leafed one.

Our nice B&B in Killarney. This one was on a hill with a wonderful view from our front bay window. (link to Muckross Drive House)

Here is the one I found in Scotland. It was on the grounds at the Drummond Castle and Gardens (

This picture is not clear although it may show you the four leaves more distinctly.
