|200||Jesus, Keep Me Near the Cross|
|(NEAR THE CROSS. 7, 6, 7, 6. With Refrain)|
|Fanny J. Crosby, 1820-1915||W. Howard Doane, 1868|
Free to all, a healing stream, Flows from Calvary's mountain.
In the cross, in the cross Be my glory forever;
Till my raptured soul shall find Rest beyond the river.(Last v.) Amen.
There the Bright and Morning Star Sheds its beams around me.
Help me walk from day to day, With its shadows o'er me.
Till I reach the golden strand, Just beyond the river.
