With the Easter season around the corner, here's a look at some songs that could stir our hearts and minds in commemoration and celebration of history's greatest event.
1. Influencers"† (just the cross)"
With no augmentation of trivial issues and with no temptation to be sidelined into lesser concerns, Influencers' newest "† (just the cross)" squarely focuses on what's at the heart of the Easter season.
2. Lou Fellingham "Wonder of the Cross"
Positioned to be a future good Friday classic, "Wonder of the Cross" is a succinct theological apology of what the Cross accomplishes from satisfying God's wrath to how it vanquishes our disappointments. If there's a song that captures the essence of soteriology without putting us off into slumber land, this is it.
3. Bethel Worship "Living Hope"
Cut by both its co-writers Phil Wickham & Brian Johnson separately, this worship anthem recounts the Gospel message with perspicuity - from our struggle with sin to Christ's mercy demonstrated on the Cross to his resurrection, this is a perfect song for Easter.
4. Passion "Behold the Lamb"
The story of redemption written on His hands/Jesus you will reign forevermore, the victory is Yours/We sing Your praise/ Endless hallelujahs to Your holy name
5. Darlene Zschech "Forever My King"
Darlene Zschech is her most worshipful best as she slowly draws us into the presence of king Jesus with this worship ballad. Exalting Jesus as the forever king is the best response of worship we can render to what Christ has done for us on the Cross.
