The Old Rugged Cross

"The Old Rugged Cross" is probably the best known Easter hymn but is not my favorite. In fact, I really don't like this one much at all, but included it for those who do. Do you want to know why I don't like this one? Well, I'll tell you. It seems to me as thought it's the cross that is getting all the attention instead of Jesus, almost like idol worship. I'm sure that isn't the intent, but the cross is only a symbol and not one I cling too. I cling to Jesus!

For those of you you love this hymn, enjoy:

Funny but I have never been a huge fan of this song, either!!! Not quite sure why but I certainly can understand your point about it being a symbol Amen, sister!!!
