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
Fora world of lost sinners was slain.

Oh that old rugged Cross, so despised by the world
Has a wondrous attraction for me
For the dear Lamb of God, left His Glory above
To bear it to dark Calvary

To the old rugged Cross, I will ever be true
Its shame and reproach gladly bear
Then He'll call me some day to my home far away
Where His glory forever I'll share.

So I'll cherish the old rugged Cross
Til my trophies at last I lay down
I will cling to the old rugged Cross
And exchange it some day for a crown






Have I told you lately that I love y ou
Could I tell you once again somehow

Have I said with all my heart and soul how I adore you
Well darlin', I'm telling you now

Have I told you lately how I miss y ou
When the stars are shining in the sky
Have I told you why the nights are long when you're not with me
Well darlin', I'm telling you now

Have I told you lately when I'm sleeping
Every dream I dream is you somehow
Have I told you that I'd like to share your love forever
Wel darlin', I'm telling you now

My world would end today if you're not with me
I'm no good without you anyhow
Oh have I told you lately that I love you
Well darlin', I'm telling you now






It must have been cold there in my shadow
To never have sunlight on your face
You were content to let me shine
You always walked a step behind

So I was the one with all the glory
While you were the one with all the strain
A beautiful face without a name
A beautiful smile to hide the pain

It might have appeared to go unnoticed
But I've got it all here in my heart
I want you to know I know the truth
I would be nothing without you

Did you ever know that you're my hero
And everything I would like to be
I can fly higher than an eagle
For you are the wind beneath my wings
Thank God...for you are the wind beneath my wings
