71. 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! O lamb of God,

    Bring its scenes before me;

    Help me walk from day to day

    With its shadow o'er me.

  3. Near the cross! I'll watch and wait,

    Hoping, trusting ever;

    Till I reach the golden strand,

    Just beyond the river.

Something wrong? Let me know.
