Verse 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

Verse 2
Here I'll sit, for ever viewing
Mercy's stream in streams of blood:
Precious drops, my soul bedewing,
Plead, and claim my peace with God

Verse 3
Truly blessed is this station
Low before His cross to lie;
While I see divine compassion
Beaming in His languid eye

Verse 4
Love and grief my heart dividing,
With my tears His feet I'll bathe;
Constant still in faith abiding,
Life deriving from His death

Verse 5
Lord, in ceaseless contemplation
Fix my thankful heart on Thee;
Till I taste Thy full salvation,
And Thine unveil'd glory see
