Beverly Lewis-Mitchell Obituary

Jesus, keep me near the cross,There a precious fountain, Free to all, a healing stream, Flows from Calv’ry’s mountain. In the cross, in the cross, Be my glory ever; Till my raptured soul shall find Rest beyond the river. Near the cross, a trembling soul, Love and Mercy found me; There the bright and morning star Sheds its beams around me. Near the cross! O Lamb of God, Bring its scenes before me; Help me walk from day to day, With its shadows o’er me. Near the cross I’ll watch and wait Hoping, trusting ever, Till I reach the golden strand, Just beyond the river. It is with much sadness that we announce the passing of Ms. Beverly Lewis Ellis, age 64 of Paris, Texas. Services for Ms. Ellis are posted,  please keep the Ellis family lifted in prayer.
