They Hung Him on a Cross

"They Hung Him on a Cross", also known as "Easter" and "He Never Said a Mumblin' Word", is an American spiritual folk song. It has been recorded by Lead Belly and Nirvana, among others.

Lead Belly's version

At least four versions of "They Hung Him on a Cross" were recorded by the American folk musician Lead Belly (born Huddie William Ledbetter). His earliest version was recorded in San Francisco in February 1945, as part of a Medley with two other spirituals, "Every Time I Feel the Spirit" and "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot." The other three versions were recorded during different sessions in New York City in 1948.
