5 Songs to Listen to This Easter

Easter is almost here, so today’s post has several song recommendations for you to listen to this week. Of course, you can listen to these songs at any time of year; but I specifically included songs about Christ’s death and resurrection. Happy listening—and happy Easter!  

1. Sunday Is Coming by Phil Wickham

This brand-new song from Phil Wickham is so powerful, especially when you listen to it in his music video. It’s such a hopeful song that captures Christ’s resurrection. It has a narrative format, which is unique in the Christian music sphere.

2. Oh But God by The Worship Initiative feat. Shane & Shane

I recently discovered this song and have enjoyed listening to it. It focuses on Christ’s death and the freedom we have because of it. The music is beautiful, and the lyrics are so poignant.

3. Because He Lives (Amen) by Matt Maher

This song has been around for almost a decade, but it’s still relevant and powerful. It’s an encouraging reminder of the hope that we have because of Christ’s resurrection. It’s a really unique, modernized version on the old hymn “Because He Lives.”  

4. Living Hope by Phil Wickham

I couldn’t resist adding another Phil Wickham song to this list. And there honestly isn’t a more appropriate song to include on this list than this one. We’ve sung this song at my church a lot recently, and I absolutely love the combination of the music and the lyrics. You definitely need to make this song a priority this Easter.

5. All Hail King Jesus by Bethel Music feat. Jeremy Riddle

This song points to Jesus’ victory over sin and death, so it’s perfect for Easter. The beginning of the song is somber, but it turns into a powerful, worshipful song. The deep lyrics will draw you into worship of our Savior.

Now I make known to you, brethren, the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received, in which also you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast the word which I preached to you, unless you believed in vain. For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. After that He appeared to more than five hundred brethren at one time, most of whom remain until now, but some have fallen asleep; then He appeared to James, then to all the apostles; and last of all, as to one untimely born, He appeared to me also. For I am the least of the apostles, and not fit to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me did not prove vain; but I labored even more than all of them, yet not I, but the grace of God with me. (1 Corinthians 15:1-10 NASB1995)
