645. THE OLD RUGGED CROSS

 

On a hill far away
Stood an old rugged cross
The emblem of suff'ring and shame
And I love that old cross
Where the dearest and best
For a world of lost sinners was slain

 

CHORUS

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

 

VERSE 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

 

VERSE 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

 

VERSE 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

139. EN EL MONTE CALVARIO

 

En el monte Calvario
Estaba una cruz
El emblema de afrenta y dolor
Y yo amo esa cruz
Do murió mi Jesús
Por salvar al más vil pecador

 

CORO

¡Oh, yo siempre amaré esa cruz!
En sus triunfos mi gloria será
y algún día envés de una cruz
Mi corona Jesús me dará

 

VERSE 2

Yo seré siempre fiel
A la cruz de Jesús
Sus desprecios con Él llevaré
Y algún día feliz
Con los santos en luz
Para siempre su gloria veré
