Near the Cross



Near the cross of Jesus,
That is where I want to be;
There, my precious Saviour
Shed innocent blood for me.
I want no mansion here,
For I would never be free,
I just want to love Him…
Throughout all eternity.

On the cross of Calv’ry,
That most awful, rugged place,
Christ gave His all for us –
Each one of the human race;
Not one thing moves me more,
Since He saved me by His grace;
Lord, keep me Near the Cross…
Where You died in my place.




 “God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ”
“The preaching of the cross is to them which perish foolishness;
but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.”
(Gal. 6:14; I Cor. 18)
