They were watching, from a distance,
and they could not take their eyes from You,
You were bleeding, 
They were weeping,
Faithful sisters,
They had followed you
They did not understand,
They could not see,
They were mourning their loss,
As the sky turned black
And the earth turned red,
At the Foot of the Cross.
They were standing, near your mother
They were so close they could hear you sighing,
All around them, angry voices
Kiss the darkness 
And you were dying
But they would not leave, 
They lingered there, 
No matter the cost,
They were staying,
They were praying,
At the Foot of the Cross.
Keep me near the cross,
Near the cross, 
May I never stray so far,
That I cannot see
What flowed down for me,
At the Foot of the Cross.
 
Now I'm standing, in your presence,
And I cannot take my eyes from You,
You have risen,
I'm forgiven,
Precious Savior Oh I worship You
No I'm not looking back,
And I've heard your voice,
And I'm stayiing here, 
I've made my choice,
But now its' real,
Now I kneel
At the Foot of the Cross.
Keep me near the Cross
Near the Cross,
May I never stray so far,
That I cannot see
What flowed down for me
At the Foot of the Cross.
