The Old Rugged Cross Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

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

I will cherish the old rugged Cross
Till my trophies at last I lay down
I will cling to the old rugged Cross
And exchange it some day for a crown

Songwriters
Leyton, Simon / Bennard, Rev. George
