Near the Cross

Jesus, keep me near the cross; 
there a precious fountain, 
free to all, a healing stream, 
flows from Calvary's mountain. 

Refrain: 
In the cross, in the cross, 
be my glory ever, 
till my raptured soul shall find 
rest beyond the river. 

Near the cross, a trembling soul, 
love and mercy found me; 
there the bright and morning star 
sheds its beams around me. 
(Refrain) 

Near the cross! O Lamb of God, 
bring its scenes before me; 
help me walk from day to day 
with its shadow o'er me. 
(Refrain)
