Hymn Text

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 Shed 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 shadows o’er me.(refrain)

Near the cross I’ll watch and wait, Hoping, trusting ever,
Till I reach the golden strand, Just beyond the river. (refrain)
