Easter Season Playlist – Contemporary Worship Songs

Back in 2009, my teammates and I put together songsheets for the Easter season.  These sheets included a mix of classic hymns as well as some contemporary worship songs.  Some of the contemporary songs and choruses we included were:

  • – Agnus Dei
  • – Celebrate Jesus, Celebrate
  • – Easter Song [Hear the Bells Ringing]
  • – How Deep the Father’s Love for Us
  • – I Know He Rescued My Soul [My Redeemer Lives]
  • – In Christ Alone
  • – Jesus Christ, I think Upon Your Sacrifice [Once Again]
  • – Led like a Lamb to the Slaughter [You’re alive, You’re alive, You have Risen]
  • – O to see the Dawn of the Darkest Day [The Power of the Cross],
  • – See What a Morning [Resurrection Hymn]
  • – Thank You for the Cross Lord [Worthy is the Lamb]
  • – The Greatest Day in History [O Happy Day]
  • – The Splendor of a King [How Great is Our God]
  • – You Chose the Cross [Lost in Wonder]

Not a bad list of songs!  I was amazed however this Easter, how many great new songs have been written in the past 5 – 6 years or so.  We needed to come up with a new set of song sheets.  Here are some of the songs we added and have been singing (links take to We Are Worship, Worship Together or Song Select for info about purchase, lyrics, etc.):
