easter songYounger children remember stories better when they learn about them in a song.  This Easter, your children can know, understand and then share the story of Jesus’ resurrection by singing an Easter song (or 2)!

Easter Song #1: Let’s Sing a Song About Easter

Tune: Jesus Wants Me for a Sunbeam

Let’s sing a song a-bout Eas-ter
It al-ways comes in spring
And it pro-claims all the glo-ry
Of Christ our ris-en king.

Chorus:
It’s spring-time and Eas-ter
A season when all things can thrive
It’s spring-time and Eas-ter
The world that’s been dead comes al-ive

Let’s sing a song a-bout spring time
When Eas-ter lil-es grow
When flo-ers like tul-ips and da-isies
Put on their grand Eas-ter show.

Repeat Chorus:
It’s spring-time and Eas-ter
A season when all things can thrive
It’s spring-time and Eas-ter
The world that’s been dead comes al-ive

 

Easter Song #2: Christ is Risen from the Dead

Tune: When the Saints Go Marching in

The wom-en went”¦ back to the tomb
And heard the words the an-gels said.
It is called the res-ur-rec-tion
Christ is ris-en from the dead.

And while they stood”¦there in the tomb
The migh-ty an-gel smiled and said”¦
Why are you stand”¦ing round and looking
For the living among the dead?”

And still to-day, the an-gel’s words
Con-tain the mess-age we a-dore.
If we give our hearts to Je-sus,
We’ll live with him for-ev-er more.
