Banjo Cover Of 'The Old Rugged Cross' From Adam Lee Marcus

Bluegrass sensation Adam Lee Marcus performs a banjo rendition of the gospel favorite ‘The Old Rugged Cross.’ This popular hymn was written in 1912 by George Bennard and reminds us all of the sacrifice Jesus made for us that day on the 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”

Adam Lee Marcus is an award-winning musician and songwriter from Westminster, South Carolina.

Today, he’s performing this iconic hymn at The George Jones Museum in Nashville, Tennessee. Every time you hear this familiar tune, it takes you back to a place long ago.

We are reminded of God’s amazing grace and love for each and every one of us. Jesus’ death on the cross freed us from all of our sins and paved the way for our path into Heaven. Remember that gift as you listen to this banjo cover of ‘The Old Rugged Cross.’

“So I'll cherish the old rugged cross
Till my trophies at last I lay down
And I will cling to the old rugged cross
And exchange it some day for a crown”

1 Peter 2:24-25 “He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed. For you were straying like sheep, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.”
