2. Christ Is Risen – Matt Maher
Easter is about victory, and few songs celebrate that victory as powerfully as “Christ Is Risen.” The refrain celebrates Christ’s defeat of death and hell, calling upon the church to stand with courage: ”Our God is not dead, He’s Alive! He’s Alive!” We suggest using this worship video loop: Jesus Worship Video Loop.

Some of the best Easter songs are also the oldest. Their endurance is a testament to the Christ-exalting lyrics and message.

“See, what a morning!” What would it have been like to be there, and to peer into the empty tomb? (Talk about goosebumps!) Christ’s prophecy was true, and he lived to affirm it. He lives today, and we shout it out it in this triumphant song of joy — “We are raised with him! Deth is dead, love has won, Christ has conquered!” Use Communion Worship Video Loop with this song.
7. My Redeemer Lives – Hillsong
There’s nothing mournful about Easter. This is one of the happiest Easter songs you’ve ever heard! “I believe!” The song repeats the glorious benefits of our living Redeemer — he’s taken away my shame, conquered the grave, healed my pain, covered my sin! Use Cross Video Loop with the My Redeemer song.
8. This Man – Jeremy Camp
We can’t think of the resurrection without contemplating the sorrowful yet glorious truth of the crucifixion. Jeremy Camp’s song is a testament to the life giving power of Jesus’ death. This is a powerful video to use: Good Friday Church Video.
9. Were You There? – Traditional
There is a haunting simplicity in these Easter worship lyrics. The song is a series of questions — Were you there when they crucified my Lord, when they nailed him to the tree, when they laid him in a tomb, and when God raised from the tomb? The song makes us stop, think, and glory in the resurrection. Use this Underwater Worship Video Loop as a background video.
10. Amazing Grace – Newton
Most Christians have sung this song many times. It’s the perfect Easter song, because it celebrates the grace of God that rescued us. Grace!
