This is one of Adam's re-imagined hymns based on "Jesus Keep Me Near the Cross." Adam and his friend Don took the original idea of the hymn and reworked many of the lyrics into a completely new song.


Jesus keep me near the cross
Show me how to live for you
Guide me by Your word of truth
Jesus keep me near

Jesus You're the Lamb of God
Cleanse me with Your precious blood
Save me from the swelling flood
Jesus keep me near

Jesus keep me near the cross
Jesus keep me near Your heart
And I pray we'll never drift apart
Jesus keep me near - near the cross

Jesus Bright and Morning Star
Shining in my darkest night
Lead me with Your holy light
Jesus keep me near

Near the cross
Near the cross
And I pray we'll never drift apart
Jesus keep me near the cross
