Full Text

1 Near the cross of Jesus,
Ever let me be,
Where the precious fountain
Flows and cleanseth me.

Near the cross, near the cross,
Cross of Calvary;
Near the cross of Jesus,
Ever let me be.

2 Neath the mighty shadow
From the noontide heat,
I would ever linger
In that refuge sweet. [Refrain]

3 Sweet and peaceful shelter,
On it I rely,
Thro’ the storms and tempests,
That around me lie. [Refrain]
