Item Number: S0.283687

This inspirational hymn arrangement of George Bennard’s beloved Gospel song begins with a gently flowing introduction. The verse continues with the quiet, reflective melody then gradually builds in intensity for the chorus. “So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross, till my trophies at last I lay down…” These powerful lyrics come to life in the chorus as the melody moves between octaves, sprinkled with quick scales and bold chords. To encourage reflection on Christ’s sacrifice as the song concludes, the ending returns to the quiet, meditative theme presented in the introduction. Duration 3:15 with the repeat.

This arrangement is one of the 16 piano solos in the collection "Hymn Favorites, Book 2."
