Keep Me Near The Cross Lyrics

(Aka.: Khaleny Korb Al-Salib خلني قرب الصليب)

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. |

Near the cross, O Lamb of God
Bring its scenes before me
Help me walk from day to day
With its shadows over me.

+ + +

Near the cross, I watch and wait,
hoping, trusting, ever
Till I reach the golden strand;
Just beyond the river.

+ + +
