Kings Return Stuns With A Cappella Cover of 'The Old Rugged Cross'

A group of incredibly talented vocalists, Kings Return, stunned with their powerful and moving a cappella cover of the classic hymn, “The Old Rugged Cross.”

Everyone has been blessed with different gifts and skills in one or multiple areas. How we use these gifts, or whether we use them at all, is completely and totally up to us. However, since they are God-given talents and abilities, we’ll ultimately answer to Him for how we decide to use them.

Did we use those unique abilities to bring glory and honor to His name? Were they used in a way that helped to build and grow the Kingdom of God?

Kings Return is a cappella group whose members have been blessed with abundant God-given talent. Soon after hearing their voices and beautiful harmonies, you’ll agree that their abilities have come from above, as they routinely produce angelic sounds.

In their latest clip posted on YouTube, the guys use their voices for a stunning “The Old Rugged Cross performance.” Of course, “The Old Rugged Cross” is a favorite hymn of many. The lyrics are memorable and iconic as they perfectly capture the sacrifice and love of Jesus Christ. He went to the cross, where he suffered greatly and ultimately died for sinners. He went through all that for you and me. 

Many are familiar with the hymn’s opening verse, but it continues to mean a great deal to many.

“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”

“The Old Rugged Cross” is very similar to “Amazing Grace” in that no matter how many times you hear that hymn, you’ll never get tired of it. Those lyrics will never lose meaning and will always cause many to react emotionally upon hearing of Christ’s loving and world-changing sacrifice.

1 Corinthians 1:18  “For the word of the cross seems foolish to those who are on the way to destruction, but to us who are on the way to salvation, it is the power of God.”
