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 Shed His 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 reach the golden strand, Just beyond the river.  In the cross, in the cross,
Be my glory ever,
Till my ransomed soul shall find Rest beyond the river.


Blessed assurance; Jesus is mine! Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine! Heir of salvation, purchase of God, born of his Spirit, washed in his blood.  This is my story, this is my song, praising my Savior all the day long; this is my story, this is my song, praising my Savior all the day long.

Beyond the River is a mixture of the two hymns Near the Cross and Blessed Assurance.
