Near the Cross

Fanny J. Crosby – (adapted)

Jesus, Jesus keep me near to the precious cross

That’s where a fountain is flowing so freely

It’s free to everyone who looks to the Lord

I can see that it’s flowing from Mount Calvary


Jesus, Jesus keep me near to the precious cross

Jesus keep me near the cross

That’s where a fountain is flowing so freely

There a precious fountain

It’s free to everyone who looks to the Lord

Free to all a healing stream

I can see that it’s flowing from Mount Calvary

Flows from Calvary’s mountain


In the Cross, In the Cross, Be my glory ever!

When until my raptured soul shall find peace and rest

Till my raptured soul shall find

It will find it, with Jesus on the far river shore…

Rest beyond the river!
