Preparing for Easter {ourselves}

This is the second part in the Preparing for Easter Series. Yesterday I shared the importance of preparing ourselves for Easter through reading. Today I'm sharing with you some music that can help prepare our hearts for Easter.

Although music shouldn't be the main way we focus on God, it can aid in focusing our minds on the things of God. When we play, listen and meditate on Cross-centered music around Easter we will be fostering our hearts towards Christ and the focus of Easter.
Here is a sample of my playlist.

Hosanna {Andrew Peterson}
Behold the Lamb of God {Andrew Peterson}
How Deep the Father's Love for us
In Christ Alone {Keith & Kristyn Getty}
Power of the Cross {Keith & Kristyn Getty}
Beneath the Cross {Keith & Kristyn Getty}
I will Sing of my Redeemer {Fernando Ortega}
Pierced for our Transgressions
Before the Throne
Alas, and did my Savior Bleed {Sovereign Grace}
I will Glory in my Redeemer {Sovereign Grace}
Before the Cross {Sovereign Grace}
Were you there {Selah}
Lead me to the Cross {Hillsong United}

What music do you listen to leading up to Easter?

Pin It Now!


  1. I know it could be controversial but I enjoy watching the Passion of the Christ on or near Good Friday. I know some points and liberties of Holiday can differ from perhaps true facts. The visual pictures are very moving to me and remind me just how real Christ's wounds were, when I hear "He pierced for our transgressions, crushed for our sins" I think of the film.

  2. I love the Newsboys' version of In Christ Alone...oh it gives me chills! Because, indeed, up from the grave He rose! Great list of songs. My children also love to sing the kids' song "Alive, Alive, Alive forevermore".

    I just posted some fun resurrection rolls for Easter:
