Words: Fanny Crosby Music: William Doane From: Guitar Picker - www.gospelmusic.org.uk Near the Cross F F7 Bb Jesus, keep me near the cross, F C7 There a precious fountain F F7 Bb Free to all, a healing stream F C7 F Flows from Calvary’s mountain. Chorus: F Bb In the cross, in the cross, F C7 Be my glory ever; F Bb Till my raptured soul shall find F C7 F Rest beyond the river. Near the cross, a trembling soul, Love and mercy found me; There the bright and morning star Sheds its beams around me. Chorus Near the cross! O Lamb of God, Bring its scenes before me; Help me walk from day to day, With its shadows o’er me. Chorus Near the cross I’ll watch and wait Hoping, trusting ever, Till I reach the golden strand, Just beyond the river. ChorusHome
