258. Sweet the Moments, Rich in Blessing

1 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 rest, in wonder viewing
all my sins on Jesus laid,
here I see redemption flowing
from the sacrifice he made.

3 Here I find the dawn of heaven,
while upon the cross I gaze,
see my trespasses forgiven,
and my songs of triumph raise.

4 O that near the cross abiding,
I may to the Savior cleave,
naught with him my heart dividing,
all for him content to leave.
