Shirley Verrett - The Old Rugged Cross

English

The Old Rugged Cross

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,
And exchange it someday for a crown.
 
To the old rugged cross, I will ever be true;
Its shame and reproach gladly bear;
Then He’ll call me someday to my home far away,
Where His glories 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.
