Good Friday- The Old Rugged Cross

What can I say?  Satan was defeated that day when Jesus died on that cross. Thank you Lord for your sacrifice!

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.



Refrain



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 some day 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

To bear it to dark Calvary.



Refrain



In that old rugged cross, stained with blood so divine,

A wondrous beauty I see,

For ’twas on that old cross Jesus suffered and died,

To pardon and sanctify me.



Refrain



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.



Refrain
