“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

Oh, 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

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

In The Old Rugged Cross, Stained With Blood So Divine
A Wondrous Beauty I See
For The Dear Lamb Of God, Left His Glory Above
To Pardon And Sanctify Me

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

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

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
