This week’s inductee in to the Southern Gospel song hall of fame is a collaboration from the pens of Mike Payne and Ronny Hinson. ”When He Was On The Cross” is one of only two songs in Southern Gospel history to win song of the year two years in a row (1985, 1986).
The version of the song to accomplish that feat was of the Florida Boys. The song was found on their 1984 recording Reaching Out. The song has been sung and recorded many times since then.
Honoring the best songs ever written in Southern Gospel music, listen to a montage of artists perform this week’s inductee; Mike Payne and Ronny Hinson’s “When He Was On The Cross”.
