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.

I sang this song when I was a teenager and when I gave my life to God in the year 1999 this song was sang again in the service and ever since I can't stop singing this soul lifted song. I cherish that rugged cross and I pray I meet my saviour one day.

My Brother even now lays dying in the hospital. Waiting for a bed in Hospice care. In my heart I sing it for him. May he soon take the hand of his guide for The Journey. May it be swift and sweet.
