Old Rugged Cross
The most widely published gospel song, Old Rugged Cross was written by George Bennard, a Methodist Episcopal evangelist in the mid 1900’s.
In the Garden
Inspired by Jesus’ encounter with Mary when she kneels and cries out “Rabboni”, this popular gospel song was written by Austin Miles in 1912.
Just A Closer Walk
Probably the favorite southern gospel song of the twentieth century, no one knows who wrote it or when it was written. It became known nationally in the 1930s, when African-American churches held huge musical conventions. In the 1940s, southern gospel quartets featured it in all-night gospel-singing rallies. It is the single most frequently played number in the hymn and dirge section of New Orleans "jazz funerals".
