The Top Worship Songs for Easter
Every song played on Worship 24/7 is meant to point you directly to Jesus. Leading up to Easter, you'll hear songs that remind us of what Easter is about. This includes Christ's death and sacrifice on the cross for us, but more importantly, his resurrection and victory over death and the grave!
We hope these songs are a clear reminder of what Easter is all about, while inviting you to worship our Savior, whether you listen on the radio or the Worship 24/7 mobile app from anywhere in the world!
Matt Redman - "Son of Suffering"
"Son of Suffering" contemplates what Jesus went through on our behalf, because he LOVES us. He knows what it's like to grieve, to cry, and bleed. Then, it culminates into a song of giving God glory and praise forever!
"Oh, blood and tears; how can it be
That there's a God who weeps, there's a God who bleeds
Oh, praise the One who would reach for me
Sing hallelujah to the Son of Suffering."
Charity Gayle - "Thank You Jesus for the Blood"
Charity Gayle's "Thank You Jesus for the Blood" sings about the blood of Jesus that was shed on that Good Friday, and his POWER to cleanse and save us. It proclaims there is nothing stronger!
"Thank you, Jesus, for the blood applied
Thank you, Jesus, it has washed me white
Thank you, Jesus, you have saved my life
Brought me from the darkness into glorious light."
Phil Wickham - "Living Hope"
"Living Hope" by Phil Wickham is lyrically rich, like a modern day hymn. Starting with our seemingly hopeless separation from God, through the depths of what Jesus went through, the song peaks with what happened on Easter Sunday!
"Then came the morning that sealed the promise
Your buried body began to breathe
Out of the silence, the roaring lion
Declared the grave has no claim on me!"
Passion - "What He's Done"
"What He's Done" looks back on Good Friday through Easter Sunday in gratefulness, and praises God in his sovereignty and victory in the here and now.
"What He's done,
What He's done
All the glory and the honor to the Son
My sins are forgiven
My future is Heaven
I praise God for what He's done."
Passion - "Glorious Day"
One of the highest energy songs on this list, "Glorious Day" recognizes the parallel of Christ's resurrection from the grave and His power to resurrect US from sin and death, and stirs up the JOY we can't help but have in Him!
"You called my name
And I ran out of that grave
Out of the darkness
Into your glorious day!"
Austin Stone Worship - "How Deep the Father's Love For Us"
Many versions of this classic modern day hymn abound, all with their own beautiful takes. This version by Austin Stone Worship featured on Worship 24/7, showcases the lyrics that reflect on beauty of Jesus' sacrifice for us, and puts Him front and center.
"Why should I gain from His reward?
I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom."
Kim Walker-Smith - "Jesus Paid It All"
"Jesus Paid It All" rings true in praising Him for paying the price of sins that we once owed. Jesus paid our debts, and we owe our lives to him!
"Jesus paid it all
All to Him I owe
Sin had left a crimson stain
He washed it white as snow"
North Point Inside Out - "Death Was Arrested"
"Death Was Arrested" celebrates God's grace and love being demonstrated through the crucifixion and resurrection. After Christ conquered the grace and arrested death, we became TRULY free in Him!
"Oh You're grace so free
Washes over me
You have made me new
Now life begins with you"
Chris McClarney - "Hallelujah for the Cross"
What was once considered a symbol of death and cause for fear - the cross, it is the ultimate reminder of Jesus shedding his blood for us, which set us free, gave us life, and healed us.
"Hallelujah, thank you, Jesus
I was a prisoner, now I'm not
With your blood You bought my freedom
Oh, hallelujah for the cross!"
Brooke Ligertwood - "A Thousand Hallelujahs"
"A Thousand Hallelujahs" proclaims that God is worthy of so much worship than we can possibly give, NOT just because he gave His son to die for us, but His sovereignty since creation and the beginning of time.
"Who else would die for our redemption?
Whose resurrection means I'll rise?
There isn't time enought o sing of all You've done
But I have eternity to try."
