The Old Rugged Cross Made the Difference
Written by: William J. Gaither and Gloria Gaither
sung by The Gaither Vocal Band
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.
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.
