Sweet the moments, rich in blessing,

Which before the cross I spend,

Life and health and peace possessing

From the sinner's dying Friend.

Here I kneel in wonder, viewing

Mercy poured in streams of blood;

Precious drops, for pardon suing,

Make and plead my peace with God.

Truly blessed is the station,

Low before his cross to lie,

While I see divine compassion

Pleading in his dying eye.

Here I find my hope of heaven,

While upon the Lamb I gaze;

Loving much, and much forgiven,

Let my heart o'erflow with praise.

Lord, in loving contemplation

Fix my heart and eyes on thee,

Till I taste thy full salvation,

And thine unveiled glories see.

For thy sorrows I adore thee,

For the griefs that wrought our peace;

Gracious Savior, I implore thee,

In my heart thy love increase.

Amen.
