Near The Cross

 at the cross

 

Jesus keep me near the cross

There a precious fountain

Free to all, a healing stream

Flows from Calv’ry’s mountain

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

In the cross, In the cross, Be my glory ever

Till my raptured soul shall find, Rest beyond the river.

 

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

In the cross, In the cross, Be my glory ever

Till my raptured soul shall find, Rest beyond the river.

 

Near the cross I’ll watch and wait, Hoping, trusting ever

Till I reach the golden strand. Just beyond the river

In the cross, In the cross, Be my glory ever

Till my raptured soul shall find, Rest beyond the river.
