Recorded by Ann Murray
Written by George Bernard
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
G D7 G
And exchange it someday for a crown
O 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
G D7 G
To bear it on dark Calvary
