Sunday Worship: “Jesus, Keep Me Near the Cross”

Jesus, Keep Me Near the Cross

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

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

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.

Near the cross! I’ll watch and wait, Hoping, trusting ever,  Till I reach the golden strand,  Just beyond the river.

CHORUS:

In the cross, in the cross  Be my glory ever,  Till my raptur’d soul shall find  Rest beyond the river.  A-MEN.

 

by Fanny J. Crosby.  1820 – 1915   and William H. Doane,  1832 – 1915
