As Holy Week, Good Friday and Easter are around the corner, it's time to discover some of the new worship songs to bring to our own personal worship and the church's praises. Here's our favorite 7 new worship songs to adorn our Easter worship with fresh vocabulary and new tunes to exalt our risen Savior.
This is applied theology at its best. You can always trust the folks at Getty music to take a lofty doctrine like Christ's resurrection and apply it to the life's meanin, how we understand trials, how we should understand death and eternity, and more.
Those looking for a dramatic reading of the Lord's passion and resurrection, may want to consider "It is Finished/Connected." Melodie Malone's re-telling is measured, powerful and earth-shattering. And to cap it off with a powerful rendition of UPPERROOM'S "Surrounded" makes this a "wow" experience.
"King of Kings" is one of those songs that can be used for Christmas season, Easter, and for that matter, any Sunday. No song captures the full work of Christ from birth to glorification with such clarity; and no song can rope in the three God-heads without sounding like there's a theology overload.
"Death of Death" is in a class of its own. A cinematic ballad that brings us to to the foot of the Cross, "Death of Death" dramatically unfolds the meaning of Christ's death in earth-shattering fashion.
Soloists looking for a worship song to sing over Easter may consider this one. With a similar dramatic unfolding as Kari Jobe's "Forever," "Messiah Overcame" re-tells the Easter story with breathtaking intensity. Peck's immaculate use of pauses, nuances, and melissma make this track truly sublime.
"Broken for Us," featuring Katie Gustafson, is perfect for a reflective moment on a Good Friday service. By putting her Alison Krauss-esque crystalline vocals to work on this well-crafted string-laden ballad, Gustafson brings out a layer of beauty from Christ's sacrifice that is fetching.
Amazing grace/That far outweighs my past mistakes/Your death became/The death of shame/I praise You for amazing grace. Grace expressed at the Cross of Jesus has never been more powerful put than this memorable power ballad by Redman.
