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.

But GOD, Forbid that I should glory, Save in The Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, By whom the World is crucified unto me, And unto the world. Galatians 6:14

My Hell debt, was paid at the cross. In that led to the resurrection. His Grace, His love, forever I’ll share. Thank you Father.
