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 song kept coming to my spirit it is a song that encouraged us to come to the cross and the benefit we get when we come close to Jesus the sacrifice on the cross. There is power in the cross.
