Jesus, keep me near the cross

Jesus, keep me near the cross,
  There a precious fountain,
Free to all—a healing stream,
  Flows from Calv'ry's mountain.
  In the cross, in the cross,
  Be my glory ever;
From the cross my ransomed soul
    Nothing then shall sever.
Near the cross, a trembling soul,
  Love and mercy found me;
There the Bright and Morning Star
  Sheds 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 shadow o'er me.
Near the cross I'll watch and wait,
  Hoping, trusting ever,
Till I see my Savior's face,
  Leave His presence never.

The cross is rough and deadly but after its work is done, comes the manifestation of the resurrection glory and power.

Lord Jesus, keep me near Your cross.

The place of my redemption and transformation.

Bring its scenes continually before me.

May I never lose sight of it.

Praise God & keep me on thy path of righteousness. For I only want to do what matters to you. Praises go up and blessing come down. Father God You’re a miracle worker and I’m asking for a miracle as I eat this bread and drink of this cup. Until we meet face to face, Amen.
