10 Worship Songs for Resurrection Sunday
My Favorite Worship Songs for Resurrection Sunday
During the Easter season, Christians around the globe acknowledge Jesus' death on the cross for the sins of the world and celebrate His resurrection. As a child, I remember being excited about getting a new spring dress to wear to church, receiving a basket filled with goodies and later going out to eat with family. Now that I am older, instead of focusing on eggs, bunnies and spring time, I make a conscious effort to put the meaning of this day to heart by reflecting on what the Christ's sacrifice and resurrection means to me and spending time in worship.
There have been several worship songs that help to set the tone for the celebration. I am sharing with readers my favorite worship songs for this season. Not only are these songs beautifully arranged, but they bring to remembrance the love of the Father, sacrifice of the Savior, and the victory we have in Christ Jesus, thus setting the mood for meditation, worship, and praise. These songs also make great songs for church service. I hope you enjoy as much as I do.
