Sweet the Moments, Rich in Blessing
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.
