Easter Worship Songs 2023

The chocolate bunnies, kiddos in matching Sunday outfits, and hiding Easter eggs.

Nails on a cross, no bones broken, the angel telling the women He rose.

Easter – the day we celebrate that our Savior rose and one day we will join Him. The day we were no longer shackled by sin and shame, but instead walking in freedom. The day that we weep for the sacrifice He made out of love for us.

Yet – what then?

For most of us, the heaps of people rushing to Sunday service fade. We go back to singing our regular worship songs. And Jesus just becomes the person we pray to, but we forget about the person who died for us. 

But, what if this didn’t have to be the case? What if it was the reality just a little while ago?

In Acts 2, we see what life was like for God’s people after their “Easter Service”. Jesus had ascended to the heavens and left them with the command, “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about. For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit,” (Acts 1:4-5). So, His disciples obediently waited in Jerusalem, praying and waiting for His Spirit to fall upon them as promised.

And, since God never breaks a promise, the Spirit fell as promised. “When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them” (Acts 2:1-5)

The word “Pentecost” as used in verse 1 in Greek is pentékosté” which derives from the word pénte, meaning “five”, or properly “fiftieth”. This reveals to us that Pentecost happened 50 days after the very first Easter. (

50 days. 1,200 hours. 72,000 minutes.

Of waiting for God’s promise. 

But, the disciples didn’t spend those days fading away. They didn’t spend them going back to their routines. And they didn’t forget about the Savior who died for them.

Instead, they prepared, choosing the 12th disciple, and “…constantly in prayer, along with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brothers.” (Acts 1:14).

When Easter ends, what are we left with? Is it exhaustion? Disappointment? Restlessness?

Or is it revival? Refreshment? A zeal for prayer?

The early Acts Church shows us a different way to approach this holiday season. Let the praise and worship on Easter continue as we wait for our Messiah to once again return for us.
