There is such beauty within the tragedy of Christ’s sacrifice on the cross in Fanny Crosby’s lyrics of this hymn! This organ piece, based on the tune of Jesus, Keep Me Near the Cross, begins with smoothly flowing parallel fourths that echo the beauty-in-tragedy essence of the hymn text, and shifts to rich harmonies that bring to mind the glory of the cross.
