Easter Octave Playlist ~ 8 Songs of Resurrection for Easter Week

In the first week of Eastertide – the Octave of Easter – we are continually turning our eyes back to the cross and the empty grave. The proclamation, “He is risen!” echoes in our hearts, as the reality of the Christ’s Resurrection continues to dawn on us.

We’ve chosen these 8 Songs of Resurrection to be the sound track of these joyous days of Easter Week, and the unfolding weeks of Eastertide.  We hope they help to keep our minds and hearts fixed on Jesus, our Risen King.
