Near the Cross Lyrics

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

In the cross, in the cross,
Be my glory ever;
From the cross my ransomed soul
Nothing then shall sever.

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 shadow o’er me.

Near the cross I’ll watch and wait,
Hoping, trusting ever,
Till I see my Savior’s face,
Leave His presence never.

What number of us can sing by heart the expressions of the melody that beginnings “Jesus, keep me close to the cross”? Would you be able to review the following not many lines?

Something beyond a tune, it’s a genuinely necessary supplication for Christians. An excessive number of us have a fragmented comprehension of what happened when Jesus eagerly accepted the cross and kicked the bucket upon it. We will in general consider the cross a path for us to get a greater amount of God’s treats, the ticket, in a manner of speaking, to our best life now.

Obviously, there is a level of truth around there: without the passing of God’s Son, you and I would in any case be in our transgressions, and in this manner legitimately under God’s fury. In any case, there’s additional, quite a lot more to it. At the point when Jesus endured on the cross He was having our spot, persevering through the division from God we merited, filling in as our substitute.

Thus, let us implore be kept close to the cross, saying “O Lamb of God, bring its scenes before me,” to address our vision of what is significant throughout everyday life and to hold the stun of this world back from making us stagger from God’s call. Until we teach ourselves to look at the cross, to contemplate its significance and practice all that occurred there, we never properly fathom God’s uprightness. At the cross, where the Son of God was broken under the heaviness of the Father’s rage, we see that the sacredness of God surpasses every one of our minds. He is blessed surely.

Remaining close to the cross, keeping it in the focal point of our lives, additionally assists us with seeing reality with regards to our transgression. The limitless enduring of Christ shows us that wrongdoing is no simple triviality. Take a gander at the cross and see what the Son of God suffered to take care of our transgression issue! He treated sin appropriately, thus should we.

As we look on the cross all the more eagerly, we learn, also, to see the value in Christ’s adoration. No sentimentalism, no sappy “anything goes” resistance is noticeable at the cross. Consider the great transcendence of His affection, not that He ignored sin — a long way from it! — yet that on the cross He passed on for it. He was under no commitment to do as such; but, He kicked the bucket, unpleasantly, just for adoration’s purpose. “It should be an inconceivable and intolerable longing,” said Martin Luther, “that causes the Son of God Himself so to endure!” This wonder, this cross, this demise of God’s Son — this is the amount God loves heathens.

At last, until we undauntedly view the cross in the entirety of its shocking superbness, it will be difficult to understand God’s call upon our lives. In His execution, Jesus was setting up an example for our lives. He Who kicked the bucket for us likewise calls us to bite the dust with Him. “In the event that anybody would come after Me,” He said, “let him deny himself and take up his cross every day and follow Me” (Luke 9:23).

Christ calls us to follow Him in cross-bearing, in kicking the bucket to ourselves, and in seeking after penance as an essential piece of experiencing the gospel. That implies that we can’t do God’s will on the off chance that we actually demand our will. We can’t supplicate, “Thy the afterlife” without likewise saying “And my realm go.”

Jesus said you can’t know Him or follow Him without a cross. The street of partnership with Christ leads over Calvary. You won’t ever encounter the joys of Christ in the event that you reject the torment of His cross.
