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.

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.

3.Near the Cross :O Lamb of God,
Bring its scenes before me;
Help me walk from day to day,
With its shadow o'er me.

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