Software: Hauptwerk IV
Genre: Hymn
This is my 36th entry in the Lenten Hymn-of-the-Day project.

This text is by William Shirley (1725-1786) and others, and the music, tune name "Batty", is from a chorale adapted by the Moravian Brethren in England, 1745.

Sweet the moments rich in blessing,
Which before the Cross I spend,
Life, and health, and peace posessing
From the sinner's dying friend.

Here I stay, for ever viewing
Mercy streaming in his blood;
Precious drops, my soul bedewing,
Plead and claim my peace with God.

Truly bless-ed is the station,
Low before the Cross to lie,
While I see divine compassion
Floating in his languid eye.

Lord, in ceaseless contemplation
Fix our hearts and eyes on thee,
Till we taste thy full salvation,
And unveiled thy glory see.
Performance: Live
