The Old Rugged Cross Made The Difference Lyrics

 

 

The Old Rugged Cross Made The Difference - Bill & Gloria Gaither/Gaither Vocal Band

Written by:George Bennard

Twas a life filled with aimless desperation

 

Without hope walked the shell of a man

 

But then a hand with a nailprint stretched downward

Just one touch then a new life began

And the old rugged cross made the difference

 

In a life bound for heartache and defeat

I will praise him forever and ever

For the cross made the difference for me

 

Barren walls echoed harshness and anger

 

Little feet run in terror to hide

 

But now those walls ring with love warmth and laughter

 

Since the giver of life moved inside

Now there's a room filled with sad ashen faces

 

Without hope death has wrapped them in gloom

 

But at the side of a saint there's rejoicing

For life can't be sealed in a tomb

Now and the old rugged cross made the difference

 

In a life bound for heartache and defeat

I will praise him forever and ever

For the cross made the difference for me

 

 

Yeah the cross made the difference for me for me
