The Old Rugged Cross
.
By George Bennard
 
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.
 
On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross
The emblem of suff’ring 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 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.
 
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.
 
To the old rugged cross I will ever be true,
It’s shame and reproach gladly bear.
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
‘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.
