The old rugged cross

1
On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross,
  The emblem of suff’ring 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 some day for a crown.
2
Oh, 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.
3
In the 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.

Each time my heart is drawn to this hymn l sense a great freshness and a reawakening in my spirit. It often brings me to a place of total brokenness and total surrender to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Oh, sufficient is the cross for me. Thank You Jesus.

What a divinely composed hymn of all time!

The essence of humanity is enshrined in the 'old looking rugged cross' borne by the Saviour of the whole world.

May the message contained in the lyrics become a reality at last for me and the rest of the faithfuls.
