1. 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.
2. 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. [Refrain]
3. In that old rugged cross, stained with blood so divine,
such a wonderful beauty I see,
for ’twas on that old cross Jesus suffered and died,
to pardon and sanctify me. [Refrain]
4. To that 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. [Refrain]
