Jesus, Keep Me Near the Cross

      Jesus Keep Me Near the Cross (3/9/2012)

Words:  Fanny J. Crosby
Music:   W. H. Doane

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


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


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.


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 raptured soul shall find
Rest beyond the river.
