Verse 
     E                     A
On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross
    B         A             E
The emblem of suffering and shame
       E                           A
And I love that old cross where the dearest and best
      B                         E
For a world of lost sinners was slain

Chorus 
E/G#     B                      E
So  I'll cherish the old rugged cross
        A                      E
Till my trophies at last I lay down
       E                      A  E/G# F#m
I will cling to the old rugged cross
      E             B         E
And exchange it some day for a crown

Oh the old rugged cross so despised by the world

Has a wondrous attraction for me
        C#                       F#
For the dear Lamb of God left His glory above
   G#         F#        C#
To bear it to dark Calvary

And exchange it some day for a crown
