"Old Rugged Cross" as written by and George/johnson Bennard....
On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross
The emblem of suffering 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
Until my trophies at last I lay down
I will cling to the old rugged cross
And exchange it someday for a crown

To the old rugged cross I will ever be true
It's shame and reproach gladly bear
Then he'll call me someday
To my home far away
Where his glory forever I'll share

So I'll cherish the old rugged cross
Until my trophies at last I lay down
I will cling to the old rugged cross
And exchange it someday for a crown

And exchange it someday for a crown
