          On the cross of Calvary the blessed Savior died,
          Gave His life to save the world from loss;
          In His pain and agony for ev'ry sin to hide,
          Shed His blood that stained the old rugged cross.

            Chorus
            'Twas His blood, His precious blood
            That stained the old rugged cross,
            'Twas His love that paid the awful cost;
            O soul so far astray, come and plunge today
            In the blood that stained the old rugged cross.

          To the cross, the rugged cross, they nailed His precious hands,
          And in death He fully paid the cost;
          And a world once lost in sin can now be wholly freed
          By the blood that stained the old rugged cross.

            Chorus
            'Twas His blood, His precious blood
            That stained the old rugged cross,
            'Twas His love that paid the awful cost;
            O soul so far astray, come and plunge today
            In the blood that stained the old rugged cross.
