Old Rugged Cross
A popular American hymn, "The Old Rugged Cross" was written in 1912 by itinerant Methodist preacher George Bennard.
The song is so notable that the home where Bennard wrote it, located in Albion, Michigan, has a historic plaque placed there recognizing the "Birthplace of the 'Old Rugged Cross.'"
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 some day for a crown
