Beloved Song

“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.

So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross

‘Til my trophies at last I’ll lay down;

I will cling to the old rugged cross,

And exchange it some day for a crown.”

George Bernard

On which the Prince of Glory died,

And pour contempt on all my pride.”

At the cross the believer dies:

  • To his fear of God’s wrath… to peace
  • To the power of sin… to victory
  • To his old self-centered ways… to Christ’s ways
  • To his old hopeless life… to new life
