Hymn: TLH 155: Sweet the Moments Rich in Blessing Organ Audio

1. 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 
All our sins on Jesus laid; 
Here we see redemption flowing 
From the sacrifice He made. 

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, 
We may to the Savior cleave, 
Naught with Him our hearts dividing, 
All for Him content to leave! 

5. Lord, in loving contemplation 
Fix our hearts and eyes on Thee 
Till we taste Thy full salvation 
And we unveiled glory see.
