The Old Rugged Cross
by Guy Penrod

Album: Hymns & Worship - Live
by Guy Penrod


'Twas a life filled with aimless desperation
Without hope walked the shell of a man;
Then a hand with a nailprint stretched downward
Just one touch then a new life began

Chorus:
And the old rugged cross made the difference
In a life bound for heartache and defeat;
I will praise Him forever and ever
For the cross made the difference for me
Barren walls echoed harshness and anger
Little faces ran in terror to hide;
Now those walls ring with love, warmth and laughter
Since the giver of life moved inside
Repeat Chorus
There's a room filled with sad, ashen faces
Without hope death has wrapped them in gloom;
But at the side of a saint there's rejoicing
For life can't be sealed in a tomb
Repeat Chorus
