1. Jes -us, keep   me   near the cross, There a precious foun  -tain
2. Near the cross, a    trembling soul, Love and mercy found    me;
3. Near the cross! O    Lamb of God,    Bring its scenes before me;
4. Near the cross  I'll watch and wait  Hoping, trusting        ever,

   A     D   A      E    D/F#           A                    E      A
1. Free  to  all,   a    healing stream Flows from Calvary's moun  -tain.
2. There the bright and  morning star   Sheds its beams      around me.
3. Help  me  walk   from day to day,    With its shadows     o'er   me.
4. Till  I   reach  the  golden strand, Just beyond the      ri-    ver.


A             D             A  D  A     E
In the cross, in the cross, Be my glory ever;

A    D  A      E  D/F#            A               E  A
Till my raptur-ed soul shall find Rest beyond the ri-ver.
