Verse 1 On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross The emblem of suff'ring and shame And I love that old cross where the dearest and best For a world of lost sinners was slain Chorus 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 Verse 2 O the 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 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 sanctify me Verse 4 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 CCLI Song # 19722 George Bennard © Words: Public Domain Music: Public Domain
