The old rugged cross

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.
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.
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.

Touching and reassuring song to me and our life.


Hmmmm what would we be without this old rugged cross. Thank You Lord for Your unconditional Love that not even one man can give.

The song is don't touch for me. It reassures me of that inextricable love of JESUS Christ for me. And equally gives me that confidence from a good shepherd. Thanks Dad. Thanks my closest friend. You are my strength and all. I LOVE YOU JESUS.

This hymn has so many special memories for me from childhood with my parents and friends in church. When I hear it I feel like I am home with my family. "Jesus is so wonderful to me".
