Near the Cross

Near the Cross: Frances J. Crosby
Jesus keep me near the cross,
there a precious fountain-
Free to all, a healing stream
Flows from Calvr'y'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 it's 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.
In the cross, in the cross
be my glory ever.
Till my raptured soul shall find
rest beyond the river.

For the Teapot Tuesday Challenge, Cindy challenged us to make a card that would help Brutus to realize that he is an Easter bunny not a puppy. I made this card with Resurrection Sunday in mind. I love this old hymn. Near the cross. I'll watch and wait for His return!! This is also for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge. Kristine challenged us to make a card with a portion raised. The cross on my card has two layers the top layer is popped up with craft foam in between the two layers. I made these cream colored roses the other day, thinking well, maybe someday, I will use them. Well that day turned out to be today.
