Jesus, keep me near the cross

1
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.
2
Near the cross, a trembling soul,
  Love and mercy found me;
There the Bright and Morning Star
  Sheds its beams around me.
3
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.
4
Near the cross I’ll watch and wait,
  Hoping, trusting ever,
Till I see my Savior’s face,
  Leave His presence never.

This song came to my heart about a week ago. It's such a great timeless gospel hymn!! I remember singing it in church! I'm glad I was able to find it here!! Yes indeed we are closer everyday to the coming of our Lord Jesus!! Let's keep praying witnessing and encouraging one another in the body of Christ!!
