Verse 1

Jesus keep me near the cross
There a precious fountain
Free to all a healing stream
Flows from Calv’ry’s mountain

Chorus 1

In the cross in the cross
Be my glory ever
Till my raptured soul shall find
Rest beyond the river

Verse 2

Near the cross a trembling soul
Love and mercy found me
There the Bright and Morning Star
Sheds its beams around me

Verse 3

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

Verse 4

Near the cross I’ll watch and wait
Hoping trusting ever
Till I reach the golden strand
Just beyond the river
