The Old Rugged Cross (Track #4)

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

CHORUS:
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 someday 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

To the old rugged cross I will ever be true
Its shame and reproach gladly bear
Then he’ll call me someday to my home far away
Where His glory forever I’ll share

CHORUS

I will cling to the old rugged cross
And exchange it someday
Exchange it someday
We’ll exchange it someday for a crown
