God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.@Galatians 6:14

H. R. Turbyfill, 1894 (🔊 pdf nwc).

Blessèd Jesus, day by day,
Keep me at the foot of the cross;
Let me from it never stray,
Keep me at the foot of the cross.

Refrain

Jesus, blessèd Jesus,
Keep me at the foot of the cross;
Jesus, blessèd Jesus,
Keep me at the foot of the cross.

I am prone to leave Thy side,
Keep me at the foot of the cross;
Let me, Lord, in Thee abide,
Keep me at the foot of the cross.

Refrain

When I’m tempted, be Thou near,
Keep me at the foot of the cross;
I can dwell in safety there,
Keep me at the foot of the cross.

When my work on earth is done,
Keep me at the foot of the cross;
May I praise Thee on Thy throne,
Keep me at the foot of the cross.
