Help Select Good Friday and Easter Hymns

Chris —  February 13, 2014

As I’ve mentioned in recent days – – I am working on an Easter Primer for our church family. I want to include recommendations for hymns that focus on the Cross and the Resurrection.

So far I have the following:

Alas and Did My Savior Bleed

“Here is Love”

“When I Survey the Wondrous Cross”

“Were You There?”

“In Christ Alone”

“Christ the Lord Has Risen Today”

What am I missing? Which is your favorite?

  1. Good choices.
    How about
    The Old Rugged Cross
    At The Cross
    Beneath The Cross of Jesus
    There’s Power In The Blood

  2. Because He Lives

  3. More great suggestions!

  4. “He Arose”–we stood around my mom’s grave and sang this!

  5. Oh and for Good Friday–“O Sacred Head Now Wounded”
    and Easter “Christ Is Risen” (newer one by Matt Maher)

  6. Not sure if Alice and I are thinking of the same song but one favorite is “Christ Arose” by Robert Lowry……….I love the way it builds to the finish.

  7. Because He Lives!

  8. Absolutely Bethany! I added that one in my notes.
