Lyric "The Old Rugged Cross"

[Verse 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

[Chorus]
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 someday for a crown

[Verse 2]
To the old rugged cross
I will ever be true
It’s shame and reproach gladly bear
And he’ll call me someday
To my home far away
Where his glory forever I’ll share

[Chorus]
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 someday for a crown
And exchange it someday for a crown
