Near the Cross

I’m listening to this precious hymn this morning. Its prayer resonates deep. Aren’t these words beautiful?

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

Chorus:
In the cross, in the cross,
Be my glory ever;
Till my ransomed soul shall find
Rest beyond the river.

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.
