Happy Easter, everybody! Today is the single most important day for Christians. Jesus died to save us from our sins. By the power of the Holy Spirit, He arose! He lives! We are forgiven and free, and we can look forward to worshiping God forever in heaven!
Whether you’ve heard these songs zero or two or two thousand times, take time to listen to the beautiful truth of these wonderful songs.
1. Christ Arose -1874- What a beautiful picture of the complete Easter story: “low in the grave He lay. . . Hallelujah, CHRIST arose!”
2. He Lives -1933- “I serve a risen savior” -how sweet the sound.
3. Christ Is Risen -2011- This song is much newer than the other ones but the truth still rings through.
4. Jesus Paid It All -1865- This particular version adds a new chorus, which I also love.
5. Because He Lives -1974- (skip to 0:30 to avoid the beginning chatting) but listen to this beautiful version of one of the loveliest, sweetest songs.
“Because I know He holds the future, and life is worth the living just because He lives.”
