As we approach the most important season for the church – Good Friday and Easter – many worship leaders are scrambling for new songs to add to their song set. In an effort to help worship leaders and encourage us to devote ourselves to worshiping new songs, here are our top 5 new worship songs that help express the sacrifice and triumph of our Lord Jesus.
5. Cory Asbury “Reckless Love” from “Reckless Love”
Like Chris Tomlin’s “Good Good Father”, Bethel Music’s “Reckless Love” by Cory Asbury captures the tenderness of God the Father in leaving the 99 sheep to search for the missing one. With a lot of imagination and creativity, this song captures the heart of the Father behind the Cross.
4. Makes Collective “Resurrection Day” from “Good News”
With an infectious Ed Sheerman melody that will have you humming in no time, “Resurrection Day” is an application song. It takes the doctrine of the resurrection of Christ and applies it in our everyday life. Such an approach not only gives Easter a new twist, it also helps our assemblies apply God’s truth to their lives.
3. Elim Sound “Crucified” from “One”
For fans who prefer a more hymnic structure to their cult, “Crucified” by the British Elim Sound is a sublime choice. A newly written hymn, “Crucified” is loaded with an almanac of great theological truths: The power of sin, slain forever, What looked like defeat would change our fate.
2. Hillsong “Remembrance” from “There is more”
Churches wishing to celebrate Jesus’ Last Supper over Easter weekend may consider “Remembrance”. A thoughtful ballad in the tradition of “O Praise the Name”, this Australian team brings the Lord’s Supper to life with three-dimensional realism.
1. Passion “God you are so good” of “All the heart”
Nothing is more reassuring than singing the simple yet so profound truth that “God, you are so good”. Centered around a reimagined version of the children’s refrain “God Is So Good”, this song explores how God loves us via the Cross in our suffering to a higher melody.
