"The Old Rugged Cross"

The Old Rugged Cross


On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross,
The emblem of suffering and shame;
And I love that old cross where the dearest and best
For a world of lost sinners was slain.

So I'll cherish the old rugged cross,
Till my trophies at last I'll lay down;
I will cling to the old rugged cross,
And exchange it someday for a crown.

Oh that old rugged cross, so despised by the world,
Has a wonderous attraction for me;
For the dear lamb of God left His glory above
To bear it to dark Calvary.

So I'll cherish the old rugged cross,
Till my trophies at last I'll lay down;
I will cling to the old rugged cross,
And exchange it someday for a crown.

In the old rugged cross, stained with blood so divine,
A wondrous beauty I see;
For 'twas on that old cross Jesus suffered and died
To pardon and santify me.

So I'll cherish the old rugged cross,
Till my trophies at last I'll lay down;
I will cling to the old rugged cross,
And exchange it someday for a crown.

To the old rugged cross I will ever be true,
It's shame and reproach gladly bear;
Then He'll call me someday to my home faraway,
Where His glory forever I'll share.

So I'll cherish the old rugged cross,
Till my trophies at last I'll lay down;
I will cling to the old rugged cross,
And exchange it someday for a crown.
