(Languages: Zulu, English – A Hymn)

Eduze nesiphambano (Near the Cross)
Kunomthomb’ omuhle (There’s a precious fountain)
Amanzi okwelapha (A healing stream)
Evela ku Jesu (From Jesus)

Esiphambanweni (On the Cross)
Ngodumisa mina (Be my glory forever)
Lapho umoya wami (That is where my heart)
Wophumula khona (Shall find rest)

Eduze nes’phambano (Near the Cross)
Ngihlale newundlu (I will live with the Lamb)
Ngisize nsuku zonke (Help me day by day)
Ngilalel’ ithunzi (Cover me with Your shadow)

(Refrain)

Jesus keep me near the cross
There’s a greater answer
Free for everyone
There’s a healing to reap
That is Glory on Calvary’s x3
On Calvary’s Mountain

In the Cross, in the cross
Be my glory ever
Till my righteous soul shall find
Resting on the river (Repeat)

Ngophumula, ngophumula (I will rest, I will find rest)
Esiphambanweni (Near the Cross)
Ngophumula, ngophumula (I will rest, I will find rest)
Esiphambanweni (Near the Cross) (Repeat)

Based on the original hymn “Near the Cross” by Frances Crosby (1869)
