Easter Song List

We’ve had a wonderful Easter weekend, and walking home from our baptism service this evening I was struck by two things:

  1. what a privilege it is to help lead people in singing the very fundamentals of our faith, and what a lucky chap I am!
  2. what a rich collection of cracking Easter music is available to the church at the momentĀ – both the old and the new. We really are spoiled for choice.
