252. Sweet the Moments Which, in Blessing

by Jas. Allen, 1757, altered by Shirley
Sweet the moments which, in blessing,
Musing o'er the cross we spend;
Life and health and peace possessing
From the dying sinner's Friend.
Here we rest—in wonder viewing
All our guilt on Jesus laid!
And a full redemption flowing
From the sacrifice He made.
Isaiah 53:4-8; Hebrews 9:12
Here we find the dawn of heaven,
While upon the Lamb we gaze,
See our trespasses forgiven,
And our songs of triumph raise.
Colossians 2:13
Oh! that strong in faith abiding,
We may to the Saviour cleave,
Naught with Him our hearts dividing,
All for Him content to leave.
Romans 4:20; Acts 11:23; Philippians 3:8
May we still, God's mind discerning,
To the Lamb for wisdom go:
There new wonders daily learning,
All the depths of mercy know.
Romans 12:2; Colossians 2:3; 1 Peter 1:3
