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 Ill 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.
      
In the old rugged cross, stained with blood so divine
A won-drous beauty I see
For twas 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 Hell call me some day, to my home far away
Where His glory forever Ill share
