Everyone will want to sing along.
Here, we've compiled the very best Easter songs, including Christian rock songs for Easter, Easter worship songs, and songs that reference Palm Sunday scripture. Whether it's your first holy day as a believer or you've been celebrating the Christian holiday for years, we have a feeling you'll enjoy every moment of glorifying Jesus to this list of inspiring tunes.
Of course, as with all things beautiful and profound, it can be hard to know where exactly to begin. Which song should you start with? Our advice: Make a playlist featuring each and every one of our picks—that way, you never have to choose! You also don't have to worry about blasting anything less than totally PG. All of the wonderful melodies we've compiled here are perfectly appropriate for grown-ups and kids alike (after all, they take plenty of cues from your favorite Easter Bible verses) and will help to remind every member of your family just how special and holy this day can be.
From newer favorites like "I Surrender" by All Sons & Daughters to MercyMe's now classic "Flawless," and even old standards such as "Easter Parade" by Judy Garland (from the 1948 Easter movie of the same name), there's something here for everyone out there. And the lyrics double as fabulous Easter wishes and messages to send to friends!
Cristina: While a lot will criticize this as a "socialist" type thing, keep in mind that this is an unprecedented time where a very massive amount of the country's population is unable to work due to the corona virus and social distancing being required all over. Even a week without work can cripple a lot of people... and some people are looking at multiple weeks without being unable to work now. For me, it's been announced my place of work will be closed for three weeks. I have other means of income but I can only imagine what other people are going through. I hate hardline socialism in general but this is definitely more in line with just helping people get through an extraordinarily rough time. The 1000$ may seem like change for some people- but for those who live paycheck to paycheck it can be a true life saver right now.
