1 Nearer the cross of Jesus,
Ever let me be;
Nearer the flowing fountain,
That cleanseth me.

Refrain:
Nearer the cross,
Nearer the cross,
Nearer the cross of Jesus.
Nearer the flowing fountain,
That cleanseth me.

2 Nearer the cross of Jesus,
There I would abide;
There let me rest forever,
Near Jesus’ side. [Refrain]

3 Nearer the cross of Jesus,
Let me live and die;
There I will find sweet refuge,
And safety nigh. [Refrain]
