The Old Rugged Cross

 

5 -5 6 -5 -6 6
On a hill far a-way,

6 6 -6 -7-6-7 -6
stood an old rug-ged cross.

-6 -7 -6 6 -5 6 -5 5
The emb-lem of suffer-ing and shame.

5 -5 6 -5 -6 6
And I love that old cross,

6 6 -6 -7 -6 -7 -6
where the dear-est and best

-6 -6 -7 -6 6 -9 8 -8 7
for a world of lost sin-ners was slain.

chorus

-7 7 -8 -8 -8 -8 7 -7 7
So I'll cher-ish the old rug-ged cross,

7 -7 -6 -6 -6 7 -7 -6 6
Till my troph-ies at last I lay down.

6 7 8 8 8 8 -9 8 -6
I will cling to the old rug-ged cross

-9 -9 8 -8 7 6 -7 -8 7
And ex-change it some day for a crown.
