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.

In the cross is my glory, I'll find rest with Him. Glory.

I just got this song from the Holy Spirit. We've placed the power and symbol of the cross in the dark for a long time. The lyrics of this song show us why we should tarry near the cross. Because anytime we lift our heads we will see Christ and continue to be reminded of His love with increasing faith. Christ said "take up your cross and follow me". Following him makes it easier for us since His destination will be our goal, and from the last stanza of the song, when we've finally gotten to the destination, Christ will turn His face unto us for us to see him, for our faith in continuing to follow him although we couldn't see His face. It's the faith in Christ and the Power of the cross that can only make us follow Christ unto perfection without fumbling.

The cross of Jesus reminds me of his suffering and shame for my redemption. This helps me stand firm in my moments of trials and and affliction, knowing that my Jesus went through same. The cross also reminds me of my victory in Jesus Christ. Hallelujah Amen
