HYMNAL: The Old Rugged Cross

Listen: https://youtu.be/-JS9P8d2iOc

Author: George Bennard

----

1 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.

Refrain:

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 O 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. [Refrain]

3 In that 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. [Refrain]

4 To that 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. [Refrain]

    An old favorite hymn: He Was There All The Time

    Time after time I went searching for peace in some void
    I was trying to blame All my ills on this world I was in
    Surface relationships used me 'til I was done in
    And all of the while someone was begging To free me from sin

    He was there all the time, He was there all the time
    Waiting patiently in line, He was there all the time

    Never again Will I look for a fake rainbow's end
    Now that I have the answer My life is just starting to rhyme
    Sharing each new day with Him Is a cup of fresh wine
    And oh what I missed, He's been waiting right there all the time

    He was there all the time, He was there all the time
    Waiting patiently in line, He was there all the time
