Page 241 - SWEET the moments, rich in blessing, Which before the Cross I spend ; Life and health and peace possessing From the sinner's dying friend. 2 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...
Page 222 - Saviour's name. 2 Sing of his dying love ; Sing of his rising power ; Sing, how he intercedes above For those whose sins he bore. 3 Sing on your heavenly way, Ye ransomed sinners sing ; Sing on, rejoicing every day, In Christ, the eternal King. 4 Soon shall we hear him say.
