7 Worship Songs for Easter Sunday

Easter Sunday is just around the corner. As you prepare for your service and meditate on the glory of the cross, here are some songs that are particularly popular on Easter:

“In Christ Alone”

Easter is a time to remember Christ’s sacrifice for us, and to remind each other that the power of his resurrection echoes in our lives today. “In Christ Alone” puts this powerful message into song.

“This Is Amazing Grace”

Jesus died for everyone, but there is a deeply personal aspect to his sacrifice that requires personal acceptance. “This Is Amazing Grace” embodies the personal aspect of the cross with lyrics like:

This is unfailing love
that you would take my place
That you would bear my cross
You would lay down your life
That I would be set free
Jesus, I sing for
All that you’ve done for me

“The Wonderful Cross”

Once an object of terror and torture, God turned the cross into symbol of salvation. “The Wonderful Cross” helps us remember the dual nature of the cross, reflecting on the sorrow and joy we can find in it.

“Lead Me to the Cross”

“Lead Me to the Cross” identifies with Paul’s sentiments in Philippians 3:8 and Galatians 6:14. As Christians, the most valuable treasure we have is our intimacy with Christ, and our identification with what he did on the cross.

“Mighty to Save”

“Mighty to Save” is always popular. It’s a beautiful confession of faith that begins with a plea everyone can relate to. The world is a dark place; Jesus’ resurrection brings it light.


In life’s storms, Jesus remains constant. His name is the one thing we can truly depend on and place our hope in. “In Christ Alone” beautifully puts into words this faith and hope for his return.


“Hosanna” is a deep expression of adoration and praise. In Matthew 21:9, we see it exclaimed as Jesus enters Jerusalem. “Hosanna,” the song, provides us with powerful words to adore our God with the highest praise, and a plea to help us live our lives for him.
