Sabbath Psalm (From Fanny Crosby’s beloved hymn, ‘Near the Cross’)

Jesus, keep me near the cross—
There a precious fountain;
Free to all, a healing stream,
Flows from Calv’ry’s Mountain.

Near the cross, a trembling soul,
Love and Mercy found me;
There the Bright and Morning Star
Sheds its beams around me.

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.

Near the cross I’ll watch and wait,
Hoping, trusting ever;
Till I reach the golden strand
Just beyond the river.

In the cross, in the cross, be my glory ever,
Till my raptured soul shall find rest beyond the riv
