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 lay down.
                                                
I will cling to the old rugged cross, and exchange it some day for a crown.



O that old rugged cross, so despised by the world, has a wondrous attraction for me.
                                                           
For the dear Lamb of God left His glory above to bear it to dark Calvary.



In the old rugged cross, stained with blood so divine, a wondrous beauty I see.
                                                          
For t'was on that old cross Jesus suffered and died to pardon and sanctify me.



To the old rugged cross I will ever be true, its shame and reproach gladly bear.
                                                            
Then He'll call me some day to my home far away, where His glory forever I'll share.
