Jesus paid it all All to Him I owe Sin had left a crimson stain He washed it white as snow. On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross The emblem of suffering and shame And I love that old cross where the dearest and best For a world of lost sinners was slain. So I'll cherish the old rugged cross (old rugged cross) Till my trophies at last I lay down I will cling to the old rugged cross (old rugged cross) And exchange it some day for a crown . So I'll cherish the old rugged cross Till my trophies at last I lay down Sin had left a crimson stain He washed it white as snow.

Smilin' Ed McConnell (born James McConnell; 1882 – July 23, 1954) was a radio personality, best known as the host of the children's radio and television series, Smilin' Ed's Gang, closely identified with its sponsor, Buster Brown shoes, and also known as The Buster Brown Program . Anyone who's been laboring under the impression that a dash of American folk music and a hymn or two is strictly for farm listeners is apparently off the beam, because here's a series of 48 shorties that two metropolitan stations - Chicago's NBC flagship, WMAQ and Minneapolis' WCCO-CBS have latched on to for a 16 week ride.
G D7 When Jesus calls me home. G C What can I bring that will ever repay. G D7 G The wonderful love He has shown. C G Day follows night night follows day. A7 D7 Farther and farther I roam. G C What will my answer be what can I say. G D7 G When Jesus beckons me home. C Sometime the clouds seem to cover His face. G D7 Sometimes the skies are gray. G C Still by His love and His wonderful grace. G D7 G Does He roll the dark clouds away.
His "Smilin' Ed's Gang" program, which began on radio in 1943 and moved to television in 1951, was believed to have been the oldest sponsored show on air at the time of his death in 1954. He died of an apparent heart attack aboard his boat moored near his Newport Beach home. Because he had pre-taped most of the shows for the upcoming season, his program continued for a time after his death. Los Angeles Times July 27 and Aug. 2, 1954.
Smilin’ Ed McConnell was the son of a minister. At the age of three, he started to sing. Also at this time, he quickly learned how to play both drums and piano.
