9 Songs to Lead This Easter

It’s mid-March and Easter is right around the corner. If you’re part of a larger church with good structure and organization, you’ve probably been talking about Easter since Christmas. If you’re part of a smaller church (like me!) with less structure and organization, there’s a chance it’s barely crossed your mind yet. 

At 10,000 Fathers, we’re a community of worship leaders that serve in local churches all over the world. From New England to New Zealand, from Nashville to Norway. And chances are we’ll all be celebrating Easter—in our own unique culture—in a few short weeks.

To help you in your planning, we’ve asked a few of our coaches to recommend some songs that they’re planning to lead this Easter.

We hope it’s a blessing to you!

John's suggestions:

Hillsong Worship – “What a Beautiful Name”

Death could not hold You, the veil tore before You
You silenced the boast, of sin and grave
The heavens are roaring, the praise of Your glory
For You are raised to life again

Passion – “Worthy of Your Name” 

On the day when You arose
The darkness ran for cover
For the King of kings has claimed His throne
Now until forever

Aaron's suggestions:

Matt Maher – “Christ is Risen”

Christ is risen from the dead
Trampling over death by death
Come awake, come awake
Come and rise up from the grave

“Were You There?” 

Were you there when they crucified my Lord?
Oh were you there when they crucified my Lord?
Oh, sometimes it causes me to tremble, Tremble, tremble
Were you there when they crucified my Lord?

George Beverly Shea – “Victory in Jesus” 

I heard an old, old story how a Savior came from glory,
How He gave His life on Calvary to save a wretch like me;
I heard about His groaning, of His precious blood’s atoning,
Then I repented of my sins and won the victory.

“King Forevermore (God the Uncreated One)” 

Oh Lifted high, the sinless man
Crucified, the spotless Lamb
Buried by the sons of man
Rescued by the Father’s hand

“Lamb of God (feat. Georgie Wilkins)” 

You are the Lamb once slain, risen to life again, exalted on high
Lamb of God, take my heart and make it yours
Make it yours

David's suggestions:

Elevation Worship – “Resurrecting” 

By Your spirit I will rise
From the ashes of defeat
The resurrected king
Is resurrecting me

Cameron Walker – “You are the Beauty”

The tone of every skin, The patterns in my hand
The miracle I am, The image that we bear
The majesty we wear, We find you everywhere
