The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life;
and he that winneth souls is wise.

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.
Chorus: In the cross, in the cross, be my glory ever; Till my raptured soul shall find rest beyond the river.
