Near The Cross Chords

C                        F              

Jesus keep me near the cross, 

C                            G

There a precious fountain.

C                    F             

Free to all a healing stream,

C                                    G      C

Flows from Calvary's mountain.




     C                    F           

     In the cross, in the cross.

     C                    G

     Be my glory ever.

     C                            F               

     Til my ransomed soul shall find 

     C                           G    C

     Rest beyond the river.



C                             F       

Near the cross, a trembling soul,

C                           G
Love and Mercy found me.

C                                    F       
There the bright and morning star

C                              G          C

Sheds its beams around me.


C                             F       
Near the cross! O Lamb of God,

C                             G

Bring its scenes before me.

C                              F       

Help me walk from day to day,

C                             G     C

With its shadows o’er me.



C                              F       

Near the cross I’ll watch and wait

C                            G

Hoping, trusting ever,

C                        F       

Til I reach the golden strand,

C                          G    C

Just beyond the river.
