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 someday for a crown
O that old rugged cross
So despise by the world
Has a wonderous attraction for me
For the dear Lamb of God
Left His glory above
To bareth to dark calvary

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

To the old rugged cross
I will ever true
It's shame and rebrokes gladly bare
Then He'll call me someday
To my home far away
Where His glory forever I'll share

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
