The Otterbein Hymnal by Edmund S. Lorenz

132 Rathbun. 8s & 7s. Looking to the Cross.

Looking to the Cross. (980)

Sweet the moments, rich in blessing,
Which before the cross I spend,
Life, and health, and peace possessing,
From the sinner's dying Friend!

2 Here I'll sit, forever viewing
Mercy's streams in streams of blood:
Precious drops, my soul bedewing,
Plead, and claim my peace, with God.

3 Truly blessed is this station,
Low before the cross to lie,
While I see divine compassion
Floating in his languid eye.

4 Here it is I find my heaven,
While upon the Lamb I gaze;
Love I much? -- I've much forgiven, --
I'm a miracle of grace.

5 Love and grief my heart dividing,
With my tears his feet I'll bathe;
Constant still in faith abiding, --
Life deriving from his death.

James Allen, 1761.
Altered by Walter Shirley, 1176.
