|1- Jesus keep me near the
There a precious fountain;
Free to all, a healing stream
Flows from Calvary's mountain.
R- In the Cross, in the Cross
Be my glory ever;
Till my ruptured 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 shadows over me.
3- Near the Cross I watch and wait,
Hoping, trusting ever
Till I reach the golden strand,
Just beyond the river.
