The Old Rugged Cross

Lyrics

Print-Friendly Lyrics

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
’Til 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
It’s shame and reproach gladly bear
Then He’ll call me some day
To my Home far away
Where His glories 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

And exchange it some day for a crown
