Near the Cross Lyrics

by Dailey and Vincent

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

In the cross, in the cross
Be my glory ever
'Till my raptured 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

In the cross, in the cross
Be my glory ever
'Till my raptured soul shall find
Rest beyond the river

Near the cross I'll watch and wait
Hoping, trusting ever
'Till I reach the golden strand
Just beyond the river

In the cross, in the cross
Be my glory ever
'Till my raptured soul shall find
Rest beyond the river

'Till my raptured soul shall find
Rest beyond the river
