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.

What a Love. Jesus was not ashamed to take my place, a ruined sinner. Lord I ask for continual grace to follow until I see you face to face.

Thank you Lord.

The Old Rugged Cross that never really gets old but is renewed everyday for my sake;

The Cross that gave me life and keeps reviving me;

Blessed be the Name of the LORD!

This song is just a paradox to me. how I have been despised by my family who persecuted my father and they are doing it to me Too. but when the evil plottrt beats his drum for the downfall of the innocent man, the God's will not let that drum sound. In God I will always trust.

Over 70 years ago my Irish Grandparents had a record of a woman singing this very song. As a child I would play that record over and over and through all these years have never forgotten that song or the words and it has played in my head through many many difficult times and sustained me - as it still does now.
