THE OLD RUGGED CROSS....CELLO SOLO
This is one of my favorite Country Hymns...it was written by George Bennard and published in 1912...
On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross,
The emblem of suff’ring 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 some day for a crown.
I have a piano version (here) but, wanted to play it with cello :-)... this is my original arrangement for solo cello and I have one for cello duet, also...if you would like to hear it...please click HERE...
I appreciate you listening to my music....please check out the rest of the site and stop back soon :-)
