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

Refrain: 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 Sheds His 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 shadows 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.
