That Old Rugged Cross of Calvary

This beautiful Christian poem reminds us of the great sacrifice our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave up Himself on the cross and died for our sins. It also encourages us to follow His footsteps and yield to His will always. 

My Prayer

Lord, on that old rugged cross of Calvary
You shed your blood and suffered agony.
You were mocked, scorned and spat upon,
By those who denied you were God’s own Son;

But the Father had a purpose, it’s plain to see –
You arose from the tomb with great victory.
You conquered death, hell and the grave,
For a sinner’s soul such as mine to save.

Then one day you called to me
To take up my cross and follow Thee.
That glorious day you cleansed my heart –
A brand new life you did impart.

I thank you, Lord, for redeeming me;
And if I had but one prayer, that prayer would be…
“Lord, keep me ever yielded to Thee”.

“Yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead”
Romans 6:13
