The Old Rugged Cross

Original and similar lyrics
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 Till my trophies at last I lay down I will cling to the old rugged cross And exchange it someday for a crown To the old rugged cross I will ever be true It's shame and reproach gladly bear Then He'll call me someday To my home far away Where His glory forever I'll share 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 someday for a crown And exchange it someday for a crown

The Old Rugged Cross

ALAN JACKSON "Precious Memories"
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. To the old rugged cross I will ever be true, It's 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]

The Beauty Of The Cross

Crystal Lewis "Beauty for Ashes"
King of my life I crown You now Youre the ruler of my heart I will wear it loud I will tell the whole world about You You died in my place You suffered all for me Just so I could live You were broken and bruised And I will tell the whole world about You The cross, stained by blood The beauty of the cross Healing for the lost The cross, stained by blood The beauty of the cross Healing for the lost The cross King of my life I crown You now Youre healer Ive longed for Now of heaven Im sure And I will tell the whole world about You Thorns on Your brow Stripes on Your back So innocent, You did it all for me Nails in Your hands Nails in Your feet Sword in Your side, You did it all for me You paid the cost Thats the beauty of the cross

Eden Quest

AGAINST ME! "Vivada Vis!"
Someday accepted as you for you. Someday accepted as me for me. Someday blind eyes will plainly see. Someday all walks of life will be free. Someday the meek will refuse boundaries. Someday the blessed will be the deserving. Land of burning vision, the nightmare before my eyes. The sore of the truth attacking the body of lies, the light of the proof overcoming jaded minds. You can lie to yourself, you can abandon the world, you can pray on the cure nature's judgement still stands. Pray to the stars, cry to the sky, demand an eye for an eye, do you save sight, or ease minds? Land of burning vision, the nightmare before my eyes. Eden Quest for proof, Eden Quest for light, quest for explanations to the suffering of life. Never been a night so cold; never been a day so bright. Spit in the face of the courteous oppressor like a slap in the face from the do-good master. Till the last bite, till the last breath, till everything is free. till you accept me for me

Paths Will Cross

JOSH RITTER "Josh Ritter"
This is it my dear old friend Our paths it seems are at an end for now Though in time we floated free We're are pulled by separate gravities to ground But it's clear in the way we part With our hearts together but our hands apart And it seems so hard to begin Best friends we'll always be Though your road don't follow me I know our paths will cross again Time has turned her face from me And spin spirals fancy free I flew With nothing but the dawn to see And now I've got my memories of you Well the road is windi' and road is hard And there's no telling just how far Or how many letters I might send One day you'll walk with me Against all probability I know our paths with cross again Time is like this fast freight train You gotta ride, you can't remain behind And all your friends are on separate tracks And some of them and some of them they won't look back to find The one place we all have known The one place we can call a home The place where each of us began Sure as that day rolls around When the road back home is finally found I know our paths will cross again Now my home is in a far off land Where love and time have made their stand against me And that's probably where I'm gonna stay It's probably where they'll marry me some day But after all is come and gone And after every songs been sung there Comes a thought I won't defend Sure stones are left unturned And on the streets where home fires burn I know our paths will cross again

Heart Of Innocence

JESSICA SIMPSON "Sweet Kisses"
[Written by Paula Carpenter*, Jessica Simpson, Frank Myers, Gary Baker] [Zomba Enterprises Inc./Swear by It Music/BMG Songs/Above The Rim (ASCAP)] Sometimes I wake up in the dark of night And in my mind there's a picture of you I know someday this dream will come alive So for now your shadow will do I've never seen your face But I know your in my heart Maybe someday some place I'll hold you in my arms [CHORUS] I have a gift for you Something that I've held on to Waiting for your sweet caress The ribbon has beed on tight For all that I hold inside And only you will possess This heart of innocence I lay my head down on a pillow of white Your in the dark I am cradled in peace No thoughts from yesterday to haunt me at night No tears to dry, no sad memories It isn't hard to hold And now I'll safely keep The strength that's in my soul Until you come to me [CHORUS] Every night I make a wish before I fall asleep That destiny will take your hand And lead you to me [CHORUS] [spoken] I love you
