This hymn goes well back into the Middle Ages, with Bach putting the finishing touches on the melody as we know it today: O Sacred Head, Now Wounded. Sung by the Altar of Praise Chorale.
Our seventh-grade class sang this as part of our Easter concert, back when America was still America.
Requested by Erlene, an Easter hymn: My Redeemer Lives, by Hillsong. I selected a clip with lyrics, in case you want to sing along.
I knew I’d want to post this more than once, leading up to Easter–Up from the Grave He Arose, by the Voice of Eden. And see–they’ve got 300,000 views for it, so I’m not the only one. Anyway, it’s an ideal hymn for Easter.
Yes, I know I posted this hymn just the other day. But Erlene requested it just now, Easter is coming, and this is surely one of the Easter hymns–Christ the Lord is Risen Today, written by Charles Wesley in 1739; sung here by the Yoder family.
With gorgeous photos of God’s handiwork, proclaiming His glory and His love, and His ever-present nearness to us.
I couldn’t resist the beauty: Jesus Christ is Risen Today, by the King’s College Choir at Cambridge. This is one of those hymns that’s the very essence of Easter. I think we’ll want to use it again sometime soon.
Any Easter hymn requests out there?
I reasoned there had to be a hymn with this title… and there is. I found Every Knee Shall Bow, by The Wilds, complete with lyrics. A nice start to the day, don’t you think.
Easter is coming, everybody. We’re open for Easter hymn requests!
Joshua found this video of 4-year-old Claire Ryann singing Beautiful Savior. I wish I could reproduce the Youtube comments here. One that stands out: “I came back to the church because of this.”
Out of the mouths of babes and sucklings, as the old psalm says…
Easter Proclamation (Exsultet in Latin), requested by “thewhiterabbit”–and Dave, I hope it’s the one you want. When I tried to use the link you gave me in your comment, my computer plotzed, emergency shutdown and all. I have no idea why. So I went to Youtube and fetched this. One way or another, we have an Easter hymn today.
This is one of Joshua’s favorites, he wants to share it with you again–The Easter Song, by GLAD.
Hymn requests are an important feature of this blog, so no one need feel bashful about making one. The more, the merrier!
