?The cross of our Lord Jesus Christ.? Galatians 6:14



Courtesy of Old Rugged Cross Historical Museum

Words & Music: George Bennard, 1913 (MI?DI, score).



The Old Rugged Cross was writ?ten in Al?bi?on, Mi?chi?gan. Or Po?ka?gon, Mi?chi?gan. Or Stur?geon Bay, Wis?con?sin. All three towns claim to be the birth?place of this hymn.



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.



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



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



To the 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

  • Above And Beyond (the Call Of Love)
    "Well I'll give you love that's above and beyond the call of love
    And love's something that money can't buy
    A poor boy's chances for pretty a girl's glances are sometimes very few
    I've got no money but if you'll be my honey here's what I'll offer you..."
  • All I Ever Need Is You
    "Sometimes when I'm down and all alone just like a child without a home
    The love you give me keeps me hanging on honey all I ever need is you
    You're my first love you're my last you're my future you're my past
    And loving you is all that I ask honey all I ever need is you..."
  • All The Time
    "All the time yes darling all the time tenderly and constantly I'll love you
    Every day I'll prove it every way in happiness or in loneliness I'll love you
    Other arms may tempt me but don't let that bother you
    For even if they tempt me I'll never be untrue..."
  • Any Old Way You Do
    "Sometimes you're mean sometimes you ain't
    Sometimes you're a devil sometimes you're a saint
    Sometimes I wish that I could leave and say we're through
    But I love you any old way you do honey I love you any old way you do..."
  • Banks Of The Ohio
    "I asked my love to take a walk take a walk just a little walk
    Down beside where the waters flow down by the banks of the Ohio
    And only say that you'll be mine in no other's arms entwined
    Down beside where the waters flow down by the banks of the Ohio..."
  • Beautiful People
    "La la la la la la la la la la la...
    You've just gotta be one of the most beautiful people in the whole wide world
    It's true it's true it's true and I love you
    You're so easy to make conversation with..."
  • Belle Of The Ball
    "Darling oh darling where are you tonight don't you even miss me at all
    You once danced with me and whispered tenderly that I was the belle of the ball
    The belle of the ball now stands by the wall
    You told me you love me and then let me fall..."
  • Beyond The Sunset
    "Should you go first and I remain to walk the road alone
    I'll live in memory's garden dear with happy days we've known
    In spring I'll watch for roses red and shades of lilac blue
    In early fall when the brown leaves fall then I'll catch a glimpse of you..."
