Many songs have been sung about the crucifixion of Jesus. However, “The Old Rugged Cross” remains an all-time favorite. George Bennard is the man behind the lovely hymn in 1912. Years later, the song is still relevant and has been covered by numerous artists including Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, and Patsy Celine. It is a song that never grows old.
Here is a new acapella cover of the song that will make you seat at the edge of the chair. It is a unique performance with no instruments. Four men, each singing a different pitch will blow your mind away. When their melodious voices combine, the song feels new. I cannot keep tab of the number of times I have replayed the song.
