Hi, @NoelBlythe!
Abdu had so many quotable moments in his talk - but if you’re referencing where he quoted someone else at the end, I think you might be talking about Isaac Watts’ hymn, “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross.” Here are all the lyrics. He just quoted verses 1 through 3.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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?

  4. 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.

Such great words, eh? I love the last verse as well.
