As we approach and prepare for the Easter season, worship leaders are looking for ways to celebrate and connect musically with the themes of the holiday.
Easter is all about resurrection, hope, and new life. Songs such as “Raise a Hallelujah” by Bethel Music and “Resurrecting” by Elevation Worship capture these themes perfectly. They remind us that no matter how dark or bleak our circumstances may be, we can always cling to the hope that Jesus offers us in his sacrifice and resurrection.
Easter also celebrates joy as we rejoice in our salvation. Songs like “This Is Amazing Grace” by Phil Wickham, “Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)” by Hillsong United, and “Goodness of God” by Bethel Music are great reminders of God’s love and grace that we can celebrate during this time.
Finally, Easter is an opportunity to refocus our hearts and minds on Jesus Christ. Songs such as “10,000 Reasons (Bless The Lord)” by Matt Redman and “Reckless Love” by Cory Asbury help us to center our attention on the cross and what it means for our lives today.
Easter Sunday isn’t the time to introduce new music! Stick with your congregation’s favorites so they can participate fully.
This Easter season, let’s take some time to reflect on the powerful themes of resurrection, hope, joy, grace, and love that Jesus offers us through his death and resurrection. Connecting these timeless truths with contemporary songs can help us to celebrate this special season in a more meaningful way!
