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.

To them it is worthless

To us it worth it all.

To them is was punishment

To us a divine strategy for eternal defeat.

To them it was death

To us it was a price.

I'M FOREVER IN LOVE WITH THE CROSS.

What a hymn, I get slain under the anointing whenever I listen to it. It brings me under grace and mercy in the cross.
