Near the Cross Misc. Gospel
[F]Jesus, [F7]keep me [Bb]near the cross,
[F]There a precious [C7]fountain
[F]Free to all,[F7] a [Bb]healing stream
[F]Flows from [C7]Calvary's moun[F]tain.
[F]In the cross, [Bb]in the cross,
[F]Be my glory [C7]ever;
[F]Till my raptured [Bb]soul shall find
[F]Rest be[C7]yond the ri[F]ver.
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.

If playing on the ukulele, it's nice to add a little Bbm during the transition from Bb to F
