Intro
       Em  C   D   Em 

Verse

Em                 C
On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross,
D                       Em
the emblem of suffering and shame;
Em                        C             
and I love that old cross where the dearest and best
D                         G
for a world of lost sinners was slain.


Chorus
       
         D                      G
So I'll cherish the old rugged cross,
         C                      G
till my trophies at last I lay down;
	 G                       C
I will cling to the old rugged cross,
         G            D         Em
and exchange it some day for a crown.

        Em C D Em

Verse 2
Em                        C
In that old rugged cross, stained with blood so divine,
  D                  Em	
a wondrous beauty I see,
Em                           C	
for 'twas on that old cross Jesus suffered and died,
    D                  G	
to pardon and sanctify me.

Chorus

         D                      G
So I'll cherish the old rugged cross,
         C                      G
till my trophies at last I lay down;
	 G                       C
I will cling to the old rugged cross,
         G            D         Em
and exchange it some day for a crown.

        Em C D Em



Verse 3
Em                       C
To that old rugged cross I will ever be true,
     D                         Em
its shame and reproach gladly bear;
Em                           C	
then he'll call me some day to my home far away,
	   D                  G
where his glory forever I'll share.
	


Chorus
    
    D                      G
So I'll cherish the old rugged cross,
	 C                      G
till my trophies at last I lay down;
	 G                       C
I will cling to the old rugged cross,
	G             D         G
and exchange it some day for a crown.
