The Old Rugged Cross
The Old Rugged Cross | Reawaken Hymns | Official Lyric Video

Songwriter/Composer/Translator George Bennard
Hindi version: Woh Pyaari Saleeb (वह प्यारी सलीब)

On a hill far away
Stood an old rugged cross
    F7                      Bb
The emblem of suffering and shame
And I love that old cross
Where the dearest and best
      F                         Bb
For a world of lost sinners was slain
Bb      F                      Bb
So I'll cherish the old rugged cross
        Eb                     Bb    F
Till my trophies at last I lay down
       Bb           Bb7        Eb    Cm7
I will cling to the old rugged cross
      Bb             F         Bb     F
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

So I'll cherish...

In the old rugged Cross
Stain'd with blood so divine
A wondrous beauty I see
For ’twas on that old cross
Jesus suffered and died
To pardon and sanctify me

So I'll cherish...

To the old rugged Cross
I will ever be true
Its shame and reproach gladly bear
Then He'll call me some day
To my home far away
Where His glory forever I'll share

So I'll cherish...
