Hymn 48 - Near the Cross

Instrumental Accompaniments

Vocal Accompaniments


Jesus keep me near the cross,

There a precious fountain,

Free to all, a healing stream,

Flows from Calv’ry’s mountain.

Near the cross, a trembling soul,

Love and mercy found me;

There the Bright and Morning Star

Shed its beams around me.

Near the cross! O Lamb of God,

Bring its scenes before me;

Help me walk from day to day

With its shadows o’er me.

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.
