Songs of Praise at Easter

praise2

These are not my own words and the praise is actually directed to our risen Lord, but I think you’ll appreciate them all the same. Perhaps you will hear or sing one of these hymns on your next Easter Sunday. If you do, pay close attention to the words. So many of these hymns are a sermon unto themselves and more often than not, the theology is right on track.

From Rock of Ages by Augustus Montague Toplady, 1776

Not the labor of my hands
Can fulfill Thy law’s demands;
Could my zeal no respite know,
Could my tears forever flow,
All for sin could not atone;
Thou must save, and Thou alone.

From My Song is Love Unknown, words by Samuel Crossman, 1664

My song is love unknown,
My Savior’s love to me;
Love to the loveless shown,
That they might lovely be.
O who am I, that for my sake
My Lord should take, frail flesh and die?

From Christ the Lord is Risen Today, words by Charles Wesley, 1739

Christ, the Lord, is risen today, Alleluia!
Sons of men and angels say, Alleluia!
Raise your joys and triumphs high, Alleluia!
Sing, ye heavens, and earth, reply, Alleluia!

Soar we now where Christ hath led, Alleluia!
Following our exalted Head, Alleluia!
Made like Him, like Him we rise, Alleluia!
Ours the cross, the grave, the skies, Alleluia!
