THE OLD RUGGED CROSS LYRICS

THE OLD RUGGED CROSS

REV. GEO. BERNNARD

1. On a hill a far away stood a rugged cross,
the emblem of suffering and shame,
And I love that old cross where there dearest
and best for a world of lost sinner’s was slain,

 

Chorus
So I’ll cherished the old rugged cross, old rugged cross,
Till my trophies at last I lay down
I will cling to the old rugged cross, old rugged cross,
And exchange it some day for a crown

2. Oh, that old rugged cross, so despised by the world,
Has a wondrous attraction of me,
For the dear lamb of God left his glory above,
To bear it to calvary,

3. In the old rugged cross, stained in blood so divine,
A wondrous beauty I see,
For t’was on that old cross Jesus suffered and died,
To pardon and sanctify me.

 

4. To the old rugged cross I will ever be true
It’s a shame and reproach gladly bear;
Then he’ll call me someday to my home far away,
Where his glory forever I’ll share.
