Loved These Easter Gospel Choir Songs

It used to be that before Easter, as a music leader, I would be on a search for songs to be sung for Easter.

I started reminiscing of songs that we have sung through the years. This Easter, I decided to post links to choir songs that I have loved through the years.

The oldest one I remember is from the 70s, Henry Jackson’s He Didn’t Have To Do It. My list includes another Henry Jackson song, Only Jesus, Him Alone, recorded here by the Voices of Christ with Helen Stephens.

He Decided To Die, Donald Vails, My Soul Loves Jesus

He Lives with Beverly Crawford, recorded on Bishop Carlton Pearson’s The Best of Azusa

For God So Loved the World, Vanessa Bell Armstrong

It Wasn’t The Nails, Mississippi Mass Choir featuring Milton Biggham

Nobody But Jesus, Vanessa Bell Armstrong.

Celebrate the King, Ricky Dillard and New G.

Calvary, Richard Smallwood & Vision

His Blood Still Works, Vashawn Mitchell, Triumphant

No Greater Love, GMWA Mass Choir

These are just a few, but I think my favorite is Matthew 28 by Donald Lawrence and the Tri-City Singers.

  1. One of the things I’m missing in all this is the beautiful music of the season. I know we can tune in to listen, but actually singing with others is such a good way to share our faith. Someone has suggested that at 10 AM on Easter morning, we should all stand in our yards and sing Amazing Grace. Wouldn’t that be a glorious sound?

    1. You are absolutely right! I miss singing hymns with my church, In Christ Alone, He Will Hold Me Fast, How Deep The Father’s Love For Us, A Mighty Fortress Is Our God, and Amazing Grace. Singing with others is what we will do around the throne with people from every nation, tribe and tongue! I like that 10:00 am idea!
