Representative Text

1 Rich are the moments of blessing
Jesus my Saviour bestows;
Pure is the well of salvation
Fresh from His mercy that flows.

Refrain:
Ever he walketh beside me,
Brightly His sunshine appears,
Spreading a beautiful rainbow
Over the valley of tears.

2 Rich are the moments of blessing,
Lovely, and hallowed, and sweet,
When from my labor at noontide
Calmly I rest at his feet. [Refrain]

3 Why should I ever grow weary?
Why should I faint by the way?
Has he not promised to give me
Strength for the toils of the day? [Refrain]

4 Though by the mist and the shadow
Sometimes my sky may be dim,
Rich are the moments of blessing
Spent in communion with him. [Refrain]
