1. Jesus, keep me near the cross; There a precious fountain, Free to all, a healing stream, Flows from Calv'ry's mountain. (Refrain) 2. Near the cross, a trembling soul, Love and mercy found me; There the Bright and Morning Star Sheds His beams around me. (Refrain) 3. 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) 4. Near the cross I'll watch and wait, Hoping, trusting ever, Till I reach the golden strand Just beyond the river. (Refrain) Refrain: In the cross, in the cross, Be my glory ever, Till my ransomed soul shall find Rest beyond the river.
