Here’s a music list for Easter 2021…
Mystery of Mercy – Caedmon’s Call:
I love the way they include every possible Biblical Character as a recipient of the mystery of Mercy
HIS LIFE AND MISSION
By His Wounds – Glory Revealed (Steven Curtis Chapman, Mac Powell, Mark Hall, Brian Littrell)
Isaiah 53 in song – stunning!
We are the Reason – Avalon
Originally by David Meece, but this version is beautiful.
Brings Christmas and Easter together.
Secret Ambition – MW Smith
An incredible song about Jesus’ Mission.
Carry my Cross – Third Day
The story of Jesus life and crucifixion from a first person perspective.
It’s very powerful
East to West – Casting Crowns
Ties the reality of our need for forgiveness to the endlessness of grace.
Sometimes Love – Chris Rice
The music, rhythm and punchline of the song’s lyrics grab me everytime
The love of the Father comes through here.
Why – Michael Card
So haunting – “His love would have held Him there.”
Via Dolorosa – Sandi Patti
This is just hauntingly beautiful
King of the Hill – Eli
The sadness of this song captures the loneliness of Gethsemane and the Cross.
It really grabs my heart.
Watch the Lamb – Ray Boltz
Ties Passover together with Simon of Cyrene…
Too Small a Price – Don Fransisco
This is from the concert he did at Loftus in 1984.
Although there are no lyrics his words are so clear.
It’s a powerful song.
It is finished – Petra
A legendary gospel rock band classic that conveys the finality of His victory.
Should have been me – Citizen Way
A new band for me. But I LOVE this song!
And it’s so true.
Mary – Dana Key
I love the accoustic guitar and the picture of Mary finding out Jesus is alive.
Graverobber – Petra
The rockers can also do something quieter.
What a solid perspective of the life Jesus obtained for us.
Arise My Love – NewSong
And anthem of resurrection from God the Father’s perspective
He’s alive – Don Fransisco
This song always makes me cry. The version I chose doesn’t have the best sound, but watch the joy on his face as he sings.
Can’t keep a Good Man down – NewSong
Brenda’s favourite! Enough said 😉
End of the Beginning – David Phelps
The power and “attitude” of this song and it’s “creed” nature grabs me every time.
Rise and Shine – Andrew Peterson
I couldn’t find one with lyrics.
It starts with a story from his childhood.
Goes to Christmas and then goes to Easter.
This one makes me cry with joy!
All I ever need – Andrew Peterson
A beautiful song drawing on some incredibly rich Biblical Images…
Shoulders – For King and Country
This beautiful song reminds us that Jesus carried and carries us on His shoulders. There’s a non-lyric music video that’s really beautiful.
Creed – Rich Mullins – Third Day and Brandon Heath
And it all comes together in the Apostles Creed.
The music is incredible and the words amazing.
The lines that grab me:
“I believe that what I believe is what makes me what I am.
I did not make it. No – it is making me.”
Simon Khorolskiy’s “I wonder as I wander” is EPIC.
