Does anyone know of a song that goes like this...

Nothing in my hand I bring
Simply to the cross I cling
I'll still cling to that old rugged cross

(It isn't the hymn - The Old Rugged Cross)

Thanks

Guest, The name of this old hymn is "Rock of Ages"

361. Rock of Ages, Cleft for Me
Text: Augustus M. Toplady, 1740-1778
Music: Thomas Hastings, 1784-1872
Tune: TOPLADY, Meter: 77.77.77
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
let me hide myself in thee;
let the water and the blood,
from thy wounded side which flowed,
be of sin the double cure;
save from wrath and make me pure.

2. Not the labors of my hands
can fulfill thy law's commands;
could my zeal no respite know,
could my tears forever flow,
all for sin could not atone;
thou must save, and thou alone.

3. Nothing in my hand I bring,
simply to the cross I cling;
naked, come to thee for dress;
helpless, look to thee for grace;
foul, I to the fountain fly;
wash me, Savior, or I die.

4. While I draw this fleeting breath,
when mine eyes shall close in death,
when I soar to worlds unknown,
see thee on thy judgment throne,
Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
let me hide myself in thee.

Nope, that's not it.

It is called "I Will Cling to the Old Rugged Cross"

I BELIEVE IN A HILL CALLED MOUNT CALVARY


I'll still cling to that old rugged cross!

There are things as we travel this earth's drifting sand,
That transcend all the reason of man;
But the things that matter the most in this world,
They can't ever be held in our hands.

I believe in a hill called Mount Calvary,
I'll believe whatever the cost;
And when time has surrendered,
And earth is no more;
I'll still cling to that old rugged cross.

I believe that the Christ who was slain on the cross,
Has the power to change lives today;
For He changed me completely,
A new life is mine;
That is why by the cross I will stay.

I believe in a hill called Mount Calvary,
I'll believe whatever the cost;
And when time has surrendered,
And earth is no more;
I'll still cling to that old rugged cross.

I believe that this life with its great mystery,
Surely someday, yes someday, will come to an end;
But faith will conquer the darkness and death,
And will lead me, yes lead me at last to my friends.

I believe in a hill called Mount Calvary,
I'll believe whatever the cost;
And when time has surrendered,
And earth is no more;
I'll still cling to that old rugged cross.

And when time has surrendered,
And earth is no more;
I'll still cling to that old rugged cross.

Could this be the song you are looking for? It has the words in it that you mentioned. Hope so.
