116. Jesus, keep me near the cross

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

Chorus:
In the cross, in the cross
Be my glory ever;
Till my raptured soul shall find
Rest beyond the river.

2 Near the cross, a trembling soul,
Love and mercy found me;
There the bright and morning star,
Shed its beams around me. [Chorus]

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. [Chorus]

4 Near the cross I'll watch and wait,
Hoping, trusting ever,
Till I reach the golden strand
Just beyond the river. [Chorus]
