Walter Shirley, 1770, altered
Sweet the moments, rich in blessing,|
Which before the cross we spend,
Life and health and peace possessing
From the sinner's dying Friend.
2. Here we rest in wonder, viewing
3. Here we find the dawn of heaven|
While upon the cross we gaze,
See our trespasses forgiven,
And our songs of triumph raise.
4. Oh, that, near the cross abiding,
5. Lord, in loving contemplation|
Fix our hearts and eyes on Thee
Till we taste Thy full salvation
And we unveiled glory see.
