Keep me near the cross

Full Text

1. Keep me near the cross,
Keep me near the cross;
Help me count all else but dross,
Keep me near the cross.

Refrain:
Keep me near the cross,
Keep me near the cross;
All for Christ I suffered loss,
Keep me near the cross.

2. Keep me near the cross,
Keep me near the cross;
Let life's foaming billows toss,
Keep me near the cross.

3. Keep me near the cross,
Keep me near the cross;
I am free, O Lord, in thee,
Keep me near the cross.

4. Keep me near the cross,
Keep me near the cross;
While I rest in thee I'm blest,
Keep me near the cross.
