1. Jesus, keep me near the cross;
    there a precious fountain,
    free to all, a healing stream,
    flows from Calvary’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 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
