The Old Rugged Cross

Verse 1
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.

Verse 2
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

Verse 3
To The Old Rugged Cross, I Will Ever Be True
It’s 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 Ex-change It Some-day For A Crown.
