I’ve Heard This Hymn A Dozen Times, But When Alabama Sings It, You Just Can’t Help But Worship!

Some of my favorite recording artists are the ones who realize that the world needs Jesus more than they need to be entertained. When the famous band known as Alabama stepped on stage, they decided to worship instead of perform. And it proved to be just what the audience needed. This is beautiful.
The band Alabama is known for many of their unique songs such as “Mountain Music” and “Tennessee River”. But the group is also equally talented at performing music about their faith, such as the hit “Angels Among Us”.
During one of their recent performances, Alabama passed up singing one of their own songs in order to bring a rendition of George Bennard’s 100-year-old hymn “The Old Rugged Cross“. Watch as lead singer Randy Owen’s eyes well up with tears as he worships God.
This is simply breathtaking.
“He himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by His wounds you have been healed.” 1 Peter 2:24
Thank God for His finished work on the cross!

The Old Rugged Cross
“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
Till my trophies at last I lay down
I will cling to the old rugged cross
And exchange it someday for a crown
To the old rugged cross I will ever be true
It’s shame and reproach gladly bear
Then He’ll call me someday
To my home far away
Where His glory forever I’ll share
So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross
Till my trophies at last I lay down
I will cling to the old rugged cross
And exchange it someday for a crown
And exchange it someday for a crown

DID YOU KNOW?:“The Old Rugged Cross” was written in 1912 by evangelist and song-leader George Bennard. The song became a favorite of country and gospel music artists after Ernest Tubb released his version of the song on his 1952 gospel album.
Did this song touch you as much as it did me? If so, share it with others so they too can be blessed by the love and power of the Cross of Jesus!
