The Old Rugged Cross – Solo/Trio

WOW – what an old time standard hymn!! I wrote the Trio right from the hymn book – chords and all – so it is just like we have sung EVERY SUNDAY in church.

When I play for a Seniors Group or nursing home – I ALWAYS play this or How Great Thou Art – EVERYONE sings along!!!

About the Song:

“The Old Rugged Cross” is a popular hymn written in 1912 by evangelist and song-leader George Bennard (1873–1958). “The Old Rugged Cross” has been a country gospel favorite ever since it became the title song of Ernest Tubb’s 1952 gospel album.
