The Old Rugged Cross | Reawaken Hymns | Official Lyric Video
Songwriter/Composer/Translator George Bennard
Hindi version: Woh Pyaari Saleeb (वह प्यारी सलीब)
Bb On a hill far away Eb Stood an old rugged cross F7 Bb The emblem of suffering and shame Bb And I love that old cross Eb 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...
