    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
    (Rugged cross)
    Till my trophies at last I lay down
    I will cling to the old rugged cross
    (Rugged cross)
    And exchange it some day for a crown

    To the 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

    So I'll cherish the old rugged cross
    (Rugged cross)
    Till my trophies at last I lay down
    I will cling to the old rugged cross
    (Rugged cross)
    And exchange it some day for a crown
    And exchange it some day for a crown
