ON THE CROSS LYRICS JOYOUS CELEBRATION 19

139
Jesus, keep me near the cross; 
There a precious fountain, 
Free to all, a healing stream, 
Flows from Calvary’s mountain. 

In the cross, in the cross, 
Be my glory ever, 
Till my raptured soul shall find 
Rest beyond the river.
Near the cross I’ll watch and wait, 
Hoping, trusting ever, 
Till I reach the golden strand 
Just beyond the river. 
(Chorus)
