The Old Rugged Cross


Original Key: Bb Major MP3

A peaceful contemporary arrangement of the traditional hymn, The Old Rugged Cross. Perfect for Easter, Lent, and Good Friday.

ID: #1082


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,
Till my trophies at last I lay down,
I will cling to the old rugged cross
And exchange it some day 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 pardon and sanctify me.


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.
