Sweet the Moments (words only)
Sweet the moment which, in blessing, Musing o’er the cross we spend;
Life and health and peace possessing From the sinners’ dying Friend.
Here we rest, - in wonder viewing All our guilt on Jesus laid!
And a full redemption flowing From the sacrifice He made.
Here we find the dawn of heaven, While upon the Lamb we gaze,
See our trespasses forgiven, And our songs of triumph raise.
Oh, that strong in faith abiding, We may to the Savior cleave,
Naught with Him our hearts dividing, All for Him content to leave!
May we still, God’s mind discerning, To the Lamb for wisdom go:
There new wonders daily learning, All the depths of mercy know.
James Allen, Alt. by Walter Shirley
