Setting aside trivial things...

Sweet the moments, rich in blessing — Cross of Jesus

(Original Trinity Hymnal, #189)

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 rest, in wonder viewing
All my sins on Jesus laid,
Here I see redemption flowing
From the sacrifice he made.

Here I find the dawn of heaven,
While upon the cross I gaze
See my trespasses forgiven,
And my songs of triumph raise.

O that, near the cross abiding,
I may to the Saviour cleave,
Nought with him my heart dividing,
All for him content to leave.

I love the words to that hymn.

Let me know if this makes it. If so, maybe we have succeeded.
