[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.
