Sweet the moments, rich in blessing (James Allen/
Walter Shirley/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

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.
Here I’ll sit, for ever viewing
  mercy’s streams in streams of blood;
precious drops, my soul bedewing,
  plead and claim my peace with God. PDF - Midi

2. Truly blessed is this station,
  low before his cross to lie;
while I see divine compassion
  floating in his languid eye.
Here it is I find my heaven,
  while upon the Lamb I gaze;
love I much? I’m much forgiven, –
  I’m a miracle of grace.

3. Love and grief my heart dividing,
  with my tears his feet I’ll bathe;
constant still, in faith abiding,
  life deriving from his death.
May I still enjoy this feeling,
  in all need to Jesus go;
prove his wounds each day more healing,
  and himself most deeply know!

James Allen, altered by Walter Shirley, in: Schaff, Philip: Christ in Song, 1870, 154-155.
