Contents of's Baptist Hymnal materials

1.	Jesus, keep me near the cross; 
	There a precious fountain, 
	Free to all, a healing stream, 
	Flows from Calv'ry's mountain. 

2.	Near the cross, a trembling soul, 
	Love and mercy found me; 
	There the Bright and Morning Star 
	Sheds His beams around me. 

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. 

4.	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 ransomed soul shall find 
	Rest beyond the river.
