Lyr. Add: PALMETTO
Tune: Dr. William Hauser, 1859
Lyrics: James Allen, 1757
Alt. Walter Shirley, 1774 (1st verse)
Christian Harmony, 1958 (2nd verse)
Meter 8s,7s Double (8,7,8,7,8,7,8,7)
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 forever viewing
Mercy's streams in streams of blood;
Precious drops, my soul bedewing,
Plead and claim my peace with God.
Had I heart to hold its pleasure,
Had I tongue to tell its bliss;
Could I share with all my treasure,
O that all my friends were his,
Nothing else could quite so charm me,
Now my ev'ry idol hold.
Satan now no more can harm me,
I've a home in realms of gold.
Tune has some similarity to "Shall we gather by the river."
