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.

Jesus Christ died on the cross to pardon our sins. But we have to do our part by living a Christian life. Yes our sins were forgiven, but the Lord wants us to make sure we live a bright and wonderful life together.

This was my favorite hymn as a child.

I haven't sung it a long time. It brought tears to my eyes as it reminds me of my saviour, Jesus the LORD! 🙌

Praying for His children everywhere on earth that His Holy Spirit moves and works among us for His glory! 🙏
