Rev 22:1 And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. Praise the Lord!

Music by William H. Deane (1832-1915)

(F)Je(Bb)sus, (F)keep (C7)me (Dm)near (Bb)the cross,
(F)There a precious foun(C)tain
(F)Free (Bb)to (F)all, (C7)a (Dm)heal(Bb)ing stream
(F/C)Flows from Calvarya€™s (C7)moun(F)tain.

(F)In the cross, (Bb)in the cross,
(F)Be (Bb/F)my (F)glory (F/C)ev(C)er;
(F)Till (Bb/F)my (F)rap(A7)tured (Dm)soul (Bb)shall find
(F/C)Rest beyond the (C7)riv(F)er.

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 oa€™er me.

Near the cross Ia€™ll watch and wait
Hoping, trusting ever,
Till I reach the golden strand,
Just beyond the river.
