celebrating resurrection day!

alright, so with easter coming up this week, i have had songs pertaining specifically to what easter is all about, christ's death & resurrection, running through my head. these songs triggered a little thought, "hey! i should make an easter playlist." this is really not an uncommon thought since i make playlists often, but this is the first one i decided to post on the blog, so that makes it's special. 

1. "Easter Song" by Keith Green 
 joy to the world! he is risen!

2. "Jesus is Alive" by Shai Linne   
Give praise to King Jesus, the blessed Son 
Victorious, glorious resurrected One

3. "The Cross" by Shai Linne   
But know this: the main thing the cross demonstrated 
the glory and the holiness of God vindicated

SIDENOTE: before i post this entire album just go do yourself a favor & buy the atonement by shai linne

4. "Death in His Grave" by John Mark Mcmillian
The Man Jesus Christ
Laid death in his grave

5. "Glorious Day (Living He Loved Me)" - Casting Crown version  
then He arose, over death He had conquered 
now He's ascended, my Lord evermore

 6. "The Power of the Cross" - Matt Hammitt version
 This the power of the cross
Christ became sin for us
Took the blame, bore the wrath
We stand forgiven at the cross

7. "The Gospel Song" 
Holy God, in love, became
Perfect man to bear my blame
On the cross he took my sin
By his death I live again.

8. "When I Survey the Wonderous Cross" by Isaac Watts (PAGE CXVI version)
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.

9. "On that Cross" by Flame
For the glory of God is of infinite worth
And his death'll justify many and bring new birth

10. "Christ is Risen" by Matt Maher
Christ is risen from the dead
Trampling over death by death
Come awake, come awake!
Come and rise up from the grave!

11. "Risen" by Hazakim 
Yeshua rose.
Case closed. 
He defeated death. 

12. "How Deep the Father's Love for Us" (Owl City version)
I will not boast in anything
No gifts, no power, no wisdom
But I will boast in Jesus Christ
His death and resurrection

 13. "Born to Die" by Shane & Shane
When the babe was born.
In a manger on the hay.
God saw a veil torn.
He saw Good Friday.
He was born to die

14. "Buried in the Grave" by All Sons & Daughters
You kept your word
Oh son of man
You buried death by taking on the grave

15. "The Gospel" by Jimmy Needham
The Gospel, the Gospel
She's good and she's true
She cost quite a fortune
To make all things new


as i make playlists i always start thinking of  more & more songs to add therefore, i try to limit the number so i don't end up with a couple hundred songs. =)

honorable mention tunes
 aka - songs i refused to post because all i could find were cheesy lyric videos:

1. "Arise My Love" by Newsong
Sin, where are your shackles?
Death, where is your sting?
Hell; has been defeated.
The grave could not hold the king

2. "O Come and Mourn with Me Awhile" by Jars of Clay
O love of God! O sin of man!
In this dread act Your strength is tried;
And victory remains with love;
Jesus our Lord is crucified!

are there any songs you would add to the list? let  me know!
